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 We Do
We serve inner city youth, their families and broader community by providing early childhood education, PreK, Headstart Programs, Free Meal Distributions, After school programs, and recreational and athletics.
Due to COVID19 we need financial support to fund these services and programs that have a direct impact inner city children who desperately need support.
