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.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
The Lighthouse has been my second home since the age of 2. It is where I have always felt accepted, welcomed and heard. I am not sure what my life would be like without this place.!
