We are The Lighthouse Group, a non-profit organization, in the Inland Empire striving to provide emotional, physcial, educational, and spiritual support to inviduals with special needs. Club meets weekly providing young adults and adults with disabilities a place to socialize and be themselves. We rely on donors and community partners to keep Club running. Please consider giving to our group as we continue to grow, reaching other individuals with disabilties in our community.
HOW WE STARTED: Lighthouse was started 15 years ago by a group of parents in South Orange County. They realized that once their special needs children aged out of formal school systems and youth groups, they were left without a community to belong to and participate in. Lighthouse Orange Country was created to meet those needs and has been operating ever since serving 40-60 participants on a weekly basis. Recognizing that same need in the Inland Empire, Lighthouse IE began in the spring of 2016 as a sister branch to continue the mission of the Glennwood Foundation. It has quickly become a place where participants can connect with others in a safe environment and thrive in interpersonal relationships, as well as their relationships with God.
WHAT WE DO: Lighthouse meets once a week for an hour and a half at “Club.” A typical night includes social time, music, a game and craft and a faith-based message including time for small group discussion. We also facilitate monthly outings in the community such as going to a movie or meeting at a local coffee shop. Additionally, we host events such as holiday dances and bingo nights.
