Who We Are

How it all Began

Lighthouse for Life was founded by Andrea Wind in 2014. For several years, Andrea had been a teacher but eventually decided to stay at home with her kids. One day, human trafficking was mentioned in a sermon at her church. She was surprised to hear that, not only was it happening overseas, but it was also happening right here in the United States. It was at this time that she felt God place a call on her to do something about this problem. As she began to research and learn more about human trafficking, she realized the vast need for housing and after-care programs for survivors.

The name, Lighthouse for Life, was birthed from a vision that God gave Andrea of a lighthouse that was surrounded by smaller homes. People from all over were coming towards the Light and finding shelter in those homes.

Andrea is not only the founder but also a board member, speaker, and visionary for Lighthouse for Life.

Watch the video below to hear her tell it in her own words.
