Lighthouse Therapeutic Community Outreach Foundation (Lighthouse TCO) is the manifestation of the belief that every individual should have the opportunity to experience physical, mental, and emotional wellness in a way that is meaningful to them.

Low-income and low-access communities have historically been impacted by states of poverty resulting from systemic oppression founded in institutions like slavery, mass incarceration, redlining, and many other policies and practices that continue to target and traumatize minorities and people of color.  Accessing services to treat racialized trauma can be burdensome to families with limited mental, emotional, physical, and financial resources. The penalty for situational poverty should not be further trauma and emotional, physical, or financial poverty.

Lighthouse TCO Foundation provides education, resources, and skills to help minority and low-access communities continue their journey of resilience and holistic wellness in a way that honors and respects their culture.

“There is a strength, a power even, in understanding brokenness, because embracing our brokenness creates a need and desire for mercy, and perhaps a corresponding need to show mercy. When you experience mercy, you learn things that are hard to learn otherwise. You see things you can't otherwise see; you hear things you can't otherwise hear. You begin to recognize the humanity that resides in each of us.” -- Bryan Stevenson
