Lighthouse endeavors to build equitable communities that alleviate poverty in partnership with and in service to individuals, families, and organizations.
About Lighthouse MI
Lighthouse MI is a growing non-profit, established in 2019 when Lighthouse of Oakland County and South Oakland Shelter joined forces to offer a stronger collective response to poverty in our Metro Detroit community. With over 80 years of combined experience, Lighthouse serves as a beacon of hope to our neighbors who need it most by offering assistance with emergency basic needs alongside housing programs and supportive services designed to support long-term economic stability. Lighthouse owns and operates Spero Housing Group, a subsidiary non-profit dedicated specifically to developing and operating high quality affordable and supportive housing for persons of low and moderate income, as well as HandUp, a community and crowdfunding platform serving 100+ homeless service agencies and their clients across the United States. The organization is one of seven community development organizations throughout the State of Michigan that serve as chartered members of the NeighborWorks America community development network, and is the only one based in Oakland County.
