Mission Statement

The mission of Lighthouse Youth Services is to advance the dignity and well-being of children, youth and families in need. We encourage
good citizenship, responsible behavior, and
self-reliance.

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 abused
or neglected children.

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 400 children, youth and families in Lighthouse residential care. Each day Lighthouse staff members serve over 1000 children and families through its community based services. Last year, the agency served over 4000 young people and families. Central to their lives are concerns about homelessness, hunger, loneliness and safety.
