Shining a light on homelessness

We recognize The Light House and its leaders are on the front lines in its efforts to significantly reduce the number of homeless in our community.

For over 25 years, Annapolis’s Light House has been serving the homeless community of Maryland providing food, housing and job training to the most vulnerable members of the community.

In 2017, Light House will open a new building, the Light House Bistro. The building will serve as a culinary training center, restaurant and catering service and will include four transitional housing apartments. The Bistro will educate and employ community members affected by homelessness and poverty, and will serve graduates of The Light House’s Building Employment Success Training Program (B.E.S.T.).

During the groundbreaking event, Bank of America presented The Light House with a check for $200,000 and named the organization a Bank of America Neighborhood Builder. “We recognize The Light House and its leaders are on the front lines in its efforts to significantly reduce the number of homeless in our community,” said Sabina Kelly, Greater Maryland market president for Bank of America. “This support will help The Light House expand its efforts, reaching more families and building the essential partnerships needed to break the cycles of homelessness and hopelessness.”

The Neighborhood Builder program recognizes nonprofits doing critical work in the community and includes, in addition to the grant, leadership training. Since Neighborhood Builders began, it’s become the nation’s largest philanthropic investment in nonprofit leadership development.
