The LIGHT House is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Your gift is tax deductible to the full extent provided by law.
The Light House has been providing services to the Kansas City area since 1985. We have been blessed in the recent years with your gifts of service and resources. We cannot operate without the support from individual donors, organizations and churches. We thank you!
Our ministry is a costly ministry. It takes a lot of dollars to operate this ministry, it takes a lot of hours of committed staff and volunteers and it takes a lot of prayer. While the costs are high ... so are the rewards! Providing a pathway to life for an unborn baby, providing hope and support for a teen mom, providing adoptive parents with the answer to their prayers, and doing all in the name of Christ ... that is our reward. Almost all of our funding comes from individuals and churches. There is often "just enough"and it is often "just in time".
So, where does your money go?
Staff: We operate much like a hospital - we are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and have to be staffed around the clock. This accumulates a lot of staff hours.
Transportation: We drive the young women to doctor's appointments, and this past year we provided more than 5,900 miles of transportation. The rising gas prices alone are having an impact on our daily operations.
Housing: Because we service an actual home, the expenses are much like that of your own housing expenses - we pay a mortgage, utilities and maintenance.
Food: We feed between five and ten girls three hot meals a day.
