Overview
It is critical to the success of our clients to provide a place of belonging, offer life changing opportunities and a broad continuum of support after leaving the program. The Light House Alumni Program is available to those who have participated in either the residential shelter or transitional housing program.

Staying Connected
The goal of the Alumni Program is to provide support and assistance to clients as they transition and maintain self-sufficiency. It also provides opportunities for former residents to stay involved with, and continue to benefit from the services and activities offered to current clients.
