The Lighthouse Foundation is a not-or-profit organisation that was founded by Susan Barton in 1991. The Lighthouse Foundation provides our young homeless with a safe place to live and offer training programs, educational services and work experience. This manifesto allows young people to take control of their lives and grow in to holistic and self-sufficient individuals. The Lighthouse Foundation has created a strong sense of community through actively seeking out ways to engage with the broader community developing rich networks and lasting relationships. Their unique model has enriched the lives of young homeless people but also makes a positive impact of the lives of volunteers and the local community.
