Amazon has a program called AmazonSmile, which will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchases to the charity you select. It costs you (and the charitable organizations) nothing, and it's just like shopping on Amazon normally, but you get to do a world of good.
When you click on the link below, you can choose the Lighthouse Rescue Mission as your charity, and from then on, a portion of most purchases you make on Amazon will benefit the Tulare Lighthouse Rescue Mission.
Items that are eligible for the donations will be marked as such on their product pages. Unfortunately, Subscribe-and-Save purchases and renewals don't count.
The LightHouse Board is pleased to announce that Pastor Louis Sparks has been named to the position of LightHouse Executive Director.
Louis has been a part of the LightHouse for many years already in the capacity of a board member. However, as the LightHouse grows and as we consider new locations and new programs, the Executive Director will be responsible to oversee day to day operations of the Women's Shelter, the Family Center and all future programs.
This is an exciting time in the life of the LightHouse. We are looking forward to what God has in store for us as we seek better ways to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate in our community.

We would like to say Thank You to Tulare County Federal Credit Union for counting and cashing in our coins at no cost. This year their generosity has exceeded our expectation when they offered to purchase the Target gift
card that goes to the winning class from each school. We are truly blessed to live in such a great community like we have in Tulare.
Thanks to the Tulare Noon Kiwanas. They have donated tickets to the Fourth of July Celebration for all of our guests
We have had a great year so for with our Coins for Caring Fundraiser. Coins for Caring is a project in our local schools. The children bring their coins in everyday for a week and donate all the monies collected to the Lighthouse. It is a great reward to go to the school and see how excited these students are when they give their coins to those in need. We are very proud of the youth of Tulare.
