Mission Statement

The mission of Lighthouse Youth and Family Services is to advance the dignity and well-being of children, youth, and families in need.

Description

Lighthouse Youth Services is a multiservice agency providing social services to children, youth and families in southwestern Ohio. Operating since 1969, Lighthouse is nationally recognized as an innovator in services for families in crisis, for homeless youth and
young adults, for youth learning to become
self-sufficient, and in foster care for children and youth who have experienced abuse and neglect.

Lighthouse operates the area’s only direct access, around the clock sanctuary for homeless, abused, neglected or abandoned youth; and a juvenile corrections facility with
a success rate more than double that of traditional facilities. In all, Lighthouse
operates 19 different programs and a charter school.

At any given time there are over 550 children and youth in Lighthouse residential care. Each day Lighthouse staff members serve over 2000 children and families through its community based services. Last year, the agency served over 6000 young people and families.
