Give Hope

Donate Now

First Light serves women and families who have been surviving on the streets and those who have recently become homeless. We give them emergency shelter and essential social services, which can lead to full independence later. The task is monumental and we need your help. Your contribution does make a difference.

So, where does your money go? 

210 emergency shelter guests were placed in either transitional or permanent housing settings, and all guests received a mental health assessment and appropriate referrals. We could not do this without YOUR support. Thank you.
