THE LIGHTHOUSE

Founded in 1893 as a settlement house, The Lighthouse offers educational, recreational, and economic programs to families and individuals in Philadelphia. The communities of Kensington, Fairhill, and North Philadelphia have relied on The Lighthouse for more than 100 years to provide services that respond to their multidimensional needs. We work to increase the quality of life in these communities by helping members towards self-sufficiency and guiding the youth and children to become contributing members of society.

WHY GIVE?

The Lighthouse’s commitment to the community has defined our organization for over 127 years and we continue to be a beacon of positive opportunities for children in classrooms, after-school activities, and on sports fields. Your gift to The Lighthouse helps us grow stronger and demonstrates your support of our mission and core values!

Annual gifts, this year more than ever, help The Lighthouse meet the challenges of our ever-changing world. Your contribution celebrates our children’s access to an excellent education, extraordinary after-school programs, and unparalleled inner-city sports programs.

YOUR IMPACT STARTS HERE!










    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.

    This is my child’s second year at The Lighthouse. The experience has been great. The staff is always polite and the teachers are amazing and very much involved with the parents and students as well.
