Mission Statement

Ignited Light seeks to provide opportunity for single mothers of color to acquire equitable access to optimum health related resources that might be underutilized due to a lack of knowledge or systemic disparities.

Description

Ignited Light is a conduit between healthcare providers and the community. Its goal is to match unemployed and underemployed single mothers of color with health and wellness professionals. Ignited Light takes pride in partnering with local businesses, community advocacy organizations, and the Crenshaw community in a collaborative "day on," not "a day off." Since 2016, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service offers have included free immigration and landlord/tenant legal services, dental, vision screenings, HIV/AIDS testing, employment services, and food distribution. Because of COVID-19, the activities were changed. The food will be a drive-thru distribution. And COVID-19 vaccinations, testing, and boosters will be available.
