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!

You'll start the race climbing one of our inflatables and then race your friends and family to the next inflatable obstacle. This bouncy course contains between 8-10 massive inflatables that will bounce, bump and slide you all over the place! You'll finish the race with a perfect photo op on our final inflatable, and after a nice refreshing drink, you can check out our awesome Inflatable Village. Check out our Inflatable Village page to see what the after party is all about!
Our inflatables are one of a kind, and your whole family will enjoy this amazing run. Bring your kids and feel like a kid again yourself. Join us at The Great Inflatable Race!

Union United Methodist Church is sponsoring a community awareness event designed with parents of middle and high school students and their students in mind. This is the third session in their series address issues that impact our families and communities.
Come out and join Lighthouse for Life as we have the privilege to speak. We are especially excited to use content from the Empower Youth Program. The most impacting feature of the program is its teen showcase. Rather than featuring adults, the media content is led by youth who speak from their experiences of learning to navigate vulnerability.
Topics include but are not limited to
What is human trafficking?
What makes someone vulnerable?
How do you decide who is a positive person or a negative person in life?
The 5 disguises traffickers try to use to get close to their target.
What do we do once we realize someone we know is being groomed or trafficked?
So if you are a parent, caregiver or a student in grades 6 to 12 this event is especially for you!
