Our greatest accomplishment is to help people navigate through life's storms, rescuing, empowering, and renewing their lives.

A Note From Yolanda East:

The work at Shepherd’s Lighthouse is one of the hardest and most rewarding things that I have ever done. Helping people navigate through life’s storms is my passion. I want to leave my children and grandchildren the legacy of helping others in any way that we can. Be the leading example in your community and if you see that your community has a need, don’t wait on others.  Remember that we are all called to action and if we all do a little a lot gets done.

We pioneered transitional housing over 20 years ago in South end of the county  and desire to continue reaching as many people in need as possible. In using this project model 83% of our clients became independent and remain independent after one year. We have clients now living on their own in the state of Pennsylvania and as far over as California, we even have clients in Alaska. Our clients stay in contact with us many years after moving out and away from us.

 The services of the Lighthouse are like the ocean. It is forever changing and adapting to changes in the environment.  Shepherd’s LightHouse is a progressive company always seeking creative ways to help our clients. Our passion is to end homelessness in our area.

It has been my pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful heart driven business for the last 19 years my hope is that we are able to keep the light shining here for years to come.
