Community is a key foundation of Lighthouse for Life. Not only do we rely on our community partnerships, but we want to do all we can to help our communities grow in their understanding of Human Trafficking and the role they can have against it.
Throughout the year, we host a variety of both fund-raising and awareness events that we would love for you to join. Many of our events are put on by Lighthouse for Life, however, at times we partner with others as well. If you have an event you’d like us to be a guest, please contact us!
