We're Here for You.
We know that families often feel like they are on an island and alone in this battle, with no time to breathe or process all the things happening through this journey. At Lighthouse, we want to be a community of people who care for and encourage your family.
Lighthouse Family Retreat is here to strengthen you and your family through programmed Weeklong Seaside Retreats and Regional One-Day and Weekend Retreats. All retreats are designed with your family in mind. Our goal is for you to leave the retreat restored with memories that will last a lifetime.
To offer a hand of support during the storm, our online resources offer a wealth of information, comfort, expertise, advice, and personal stories designed to inspire anyone who may be experiencing childhood cancer — or wondering how they can help those who are.
HOSPITAL CARE PROGRAM
The Hospital Care program provides monthly meals and gift bags to families living through childhood cancer during their stay at a children's hospital or outpatient clinic. Lighthouse utilizes church partners and volunteers to assemble the gift bags and coordinate the delivery with the social workers on the oncology floors. Local restaurants play a huge role in offering discounted meals in support of our mission to strengthen families living through childhood cancer.
COMMUNITY OF CARE
The Community of Care program offers support to families whose child is still on cancer treatment. Families often feel they have exhausted their inner circle of friends and family in those early months of diagnosis. Lighthouse mobilizes volunteers on Care Teams to come alongside families to fill in any gaps of support. Though we can’t eliminate cancer, we can make sure that you do not walk this dark journey alone. Our Care Teams provide support through meals, texts, care packages, notecards, and prayer. They are an extra set of hands and feet willing to offer consistent support and care to families in need.
