What We Do

Lighthouse of Oakland County and South Oakland Shelter joined forces in 2019 to provide a stronger response to poverty in our community. Our goal is to be ‘A Beacon of Hope’ for those in need and provide a larger reach across all of southeastern Michigan.

Lighthouse endeavors to build equitable communities that alleviate poverty in partnership with and in service to individuals, families, and organizations.

Our Combined Strategies:

Basic Needs: Better respond to the immediate, basic needs of those experiencing poverty.
Stability: Work with economically challenged households to establish longer-term stability.
Systems Change: Address housing affordability, food insecurity, transportation and other factors contributing to poverty.
Community Engagement: Engage, educate and empower our community to ensure all have access to a better quality of life.
