Welcome to The Lighthouse!

Founded in 1893 as a settlement house, the mission of the Lighthouse is to provide educational, recreational and economic improvement programs to families and individuals to improve the quality of their lives, help them move toward self-sufficiency and nurture children and youth, guiding them to become contributing members of society. For more than 100 years the Kensington, Fairhill and North Philadelphia communities have relied on the Lighthouse to provide multi-cultural services that respond to the multi-dimensional needs of our communities’ members.

Welcome, Safe-Hub! Safe-Hub will be introducing The Lighthouse "FairPlay" soccer program in March 2020! This soccer program is designed to develop life-skills through soccer in a way that produces great athletes and great people. The program teaches and sharpens young people’s fundamental soccer skills through consistent practice in addition to helping them discover skills in teamwork, leadership, and overcoming adversity and setbacks.
