Lighthouse Charities is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in Las Vegas.

OUR MISSION is to assist families and individuals who are transitioning out of Welfare, at-risk individuals and low-income families, and recent legal immigrants in becoming self-reliant. We do this by temporarily providing assistance with clothing, hygiene, household items, school supplies, English language classes, cultural mentoring, and employment assistance. 

OUR PROGRAMS include, but are not limited to, the Rejesha Project, a workforce training program in partnership with the Nevada Division of Welfare and Supportive Services and the community; Nafasi Designs, a social innovation business which trains caregiving individuals to make and sell marketable crafts to provide additional income; weekly ELL classes; educational support and scholarships; and an annual community event that provides on-site medical, dental, and vision exams.
