Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We are on a mission to heal the pain of abuse and neglect in children.
Many Lights Foundation is driving force for the creation of a multigenerational community called Hope Lights to support families adopting children from foster care, at-risk kinship families, and adults over 55 who desire connection and purpose.
Six communities like Hope Lights are operating elsewhere in the US and we want to bring this community model first to the Puget Sound area.
Within our multigenerational community, elders will be seen as honorary grandparents providing support and nurturance to children, while adoptive families will become "grandparent helpers", supporting elders in living a vibrant life. With the increase in the number of grandparents raising their grandchildren, Many Lights is also committed to providing kinship families like these with safe homes.
Hope Lights will have approximately 40 affordable residences for adults over 55 and 12 homes for kinship families and those adopting children from foster care. It will also include a multigenerational community center, tutoring, library and computer rooms, gardens and play areas. Community events will be educational, recreational, cultural and focused on health and well-being.
Many Lights Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth who have experience trauma and family separation. We provide intergenerational connections where everyone flourishes and children and youth in foster, adoptive and kinship care have opportunities for a successful transitions into adulthood.
