The LIGHT House
Christ Centered Support For Young Mothers and Their Babies
It is often difficult for a teenager experiencing an unplanned pregnancy to find a place that will support her choice to give birth to her baby instead of getting an abortion. The LIGHT House provides Christ-centered maternity care, adoption services and on-going ministry to young mothers and their babies in the Kansas City area.
Throughout the last thirty years, The LIGHT House has helped save the lives of hundreds of babies, enable hundreds of young ladies to become loving mothers and help complete families through adoption.

Thoughts from The LIGHT House President

Mission Statement (posted June 27, 2017)
Today in its quarterly meeting, the Board of Trustees adopted the following as the mission statement for The LIGHT House:
"The LIGHT House is committed to serving God by responding to the needs of children, youth, and families to ensure all Life Is Given Hope for Tomorrow."
This is a simple statement, but there is a lot of meaning and impact in those few words. For those familiar with the mission statement of Missouri Baptist Children's Home, you will note that this statement conveys a very similar message while it also retains the reference to Life Is Given Hope for Tomorrow (LIGHT), which has been part of The LIGHT House since its founding.
Life is truly given hope each and every day as our dedicated staff provide services to our clients and as our many friends pray for us and support us with their gifts. Thank you for making this ministry a reality.
Volunteer Opportunities (posted 06/05/2017)
Would you like to have a "hands-on"involvement in ministering to the clients of The LIGHT House? Well, we have two volunteer opportunities just for you.
We currently have an urgent need for volunteers to help with our toddlers and children during the Outreach Program on Tuesday evenings. Outreach runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Volunteers are asked to commit to one week per month to help care for the children. Individuals or small gruops are welcome.
We are also looking for two to three indivduals to assist in the Baby Boutique on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. while the Outreach participants shop. Weekly or biweekly commitments are preferred.
All volunteers will need to complete an application as well as a backgorund check form. Contact Julie Karanja for more information at email@example.com or at 816-868-5139.
