Letter of Progress from our Founder

Great things are happening at Light House Solutions! 2019 was a year of establishing, connecting, co-creating and straight line thinking to create a competent human service system that all would trust.

 

We are excited to express that we have expanded our mobile services adding our new home office at the Center for Nonprofits at the JTL shop in Springdale Arkansas. Light House Solutions (LHS) is regarded by customers and the communities throughout Southwest, and Northwest Arkansas, as a trusted source for high-level insight and hands on practical advice. As a developing non-profit in the NWA area, our team has been courageously taking the grassroots approach to drive our campaign “SEE A Need Fill A Need.” into communities, schools, businesses and leaders. The results have been amazing, people from all walks of life living in the NWA area feel a sense of community connectivity, all expressing that their needs and desires were met.

 No matter where we are place to work, for 8 yrs. (LHS) has firmly stood behind the true authenticity of Diversity and Inclusion which has allowed us to produce positive outcomes and trusting/ lasting relationships. We will continue to spread our empathy, love & services throughout Washington, Benton County and the rural areas of NWA. 2020 we will lead the charge to SPARK people and empower our youth to become INSPIRING MOTIVATORS!   We welcome your support to help us SPARK!
