Light’s Motivational Corner
The Giving Season Is Upon Us
Help to keep our LIGHT SHINING so BRIGHT!!!
For more than 24 years through the promotion of health, wellness and education, LIGHT Health and Wellness has been at the forefront of serving women, children and families whose lives have been impacted by HIV, poverty, substance abuse, mental health and trauma. At the core of our infrastructure, our child care center has been a safe haven and a beacon of shining LIGHT for the communities and residents of Baltimore City; providing a healthy start in educating some of the city’s most vulnerable and at-risk children. It is LIGHT’s vision to ensure the support and continuity of the family unit, and hold up the LIGHT that will help others to see through the dark times we face!
LIGHT’s Annual Fund Campaign begins with Giving Tuesday! It is our effort in embarking on the program plans for the upcoming New Year to play an instrumental part in addressing those vital community needs and place action to positively impact a city that is in despair resulting from our disparaging social and economic state.
With LIGHT fulfilling a fundamental need within the communities most impacted with vulnerable populations that could face the harsh brunt of this blow, we feel a great responsibility in advocating for our children, with the family unit as the chief core. As LIGHT continues to evolve its services to meet the challenges of today’s communities, the goal is to provide services that support communities and families through the most exasperating times of their lives. We are experiencing those times right now!
Here’s how YOUR SUPPORT WORKS!!!
- Enhance and expand services to at-risk children, youth and families impacted by health disparities and socio-economic issues, including, substance abuse, mental health issues, HIV/AIDS, low income, unemployment, and homelessness;
