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? 

  • 91% were emergency shelter and permanent supportive housing expenses  
  • 7.5% were management and general expenses  
  • 1.3% were fundraising expenses

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.


We respect your desire for privacy and will not share any of your contact information with third parties.
