Our Mission: Lantern House exists to aid the poor, needy and homeless by providing them food, shelter, and critical emergency services. We provide a hand up rather than a hand out. Our goal is to transition residents from shelter to housing; encouraging their sense of independence, self-sufficiency and self-confidence. We are committed to carry out this mission while treating those who come to us with compassion, dignity, and respect.
Our Core Values: > Compassion requires us to stand with and embrace others in their need that together we may grow as the human family. > Service directs us to translate our values of faith, hope, charity and integrity for the well-being of others. > Dignity in each human being compels us to meet one another with respect, kindness, and charity. > Responsibility obliges us to care for the least among us that together we may enrich and strengthen the community.
