What is the Community of Care Program?
Our Lighthouse Family Retreat mission is to strengthen families living through childhood cancer through restorative retreats and helpful resources. The Community of Care program is a resource designed for you and your family. We want to meet you where you are and serve you during this hard season. Families like yours will always be at the forefront of everything we do in hopes of making your load lighter!
How Will You Be Supported?
The Community of Care Program will mobilize volunteers within your community or virtually to provide you and your family with support during your journey of childhood cancer in the following ways…
PRAYER & CHECK-INS
You are not forgotten. Your team will check in and look after you through phone calls and texts. They will pray for you and your family daily.
MEALS & NOTES
Everyone needs a break from time to time. Receiving meals and words of inspiration on this journey can change the outlook of your day.
Providing you with some fun is our treat. We create fun, memories, and surprises to strengthen you and your family as we walk alongside you.

I couldn't even get past the front door without Lighthouse making me cry for the 17th time this week.
Notes dropped in my mailbox and meals on my front porch made treatment days so much easier for us as a family. I knew we were cared for and being supported through hard times. Grateful!
We are so thankful for our community of care group. Each month we receive cards, letters, texts, prayers, meals, and care packages from our virtual care group in Santa Rosa Beach.
Our care team has been like angels to us. Every single time we have had a need, they have met it before we asked. Truly the hands and feet of Jesus.
