When you see organizations that give their all to communities, who are authentic, and passionate about the work that they do you cannot help but to give back to them. LIGHT Health and Wellness provides a genuine light that shines in West Baltimore. There are so many kids, parents, families, schools, and community-based organizations that benefit from the light that shines through LIGHT.
When faced with challenging financial times, LIGHT was there for us! Because of the generosity of others, we were able to get child care for our triplets at a reduced cost which relieved some of the financial pressure we were experiencing. We are still very grateful for the helping hand that was extended to us, and one of the best ways we can show our appreciation is to invest in LIGHT’s mission and vision. We know our investment will help others in need.
LIGHT has truly been just that a “LIGHT” in my life. Your donation will help others just like me. There are so many stories just like mine and many more that can be born just from donating TODAY!!
I’m very grateful for this program because of the support and encouragement I will have 60 days CLEAN inside out. Thank you GOD for LIGHT Health and Wellness. You have helped save my life.
How do I reach people in need? The folks at LIGHT taught me to stop trying to reach them and start letting myself be reached by them. I opened my heart and my wallet to LIGHT. That’s two of the best things I ever did.
