Jacob’s Well is devoted to working with individuals, churches, and community organizations in an effort to connect people in need with resources and skills which will improve their quality of life both physically and spiritually.  


Lighthouse has helped thousands of middle and high school students become successful adults by providing them with a safe, loving environment where they could come after school. Programs like mentoring, tutoring and academic support, activities, and nutritious snacks and meals have been the foundation that has made it possible for our students to thrive.

We have several dog/handler teams who visit the Lighthouse several times a month, as well as individuals who volunteer as needed.  If you’d like to be a part of the wonderful work Lighthouse is doing, click the Volunteer link below.

Our mission is to strengthen our community by teaching the English language and a variety of literacy skills to people of all cultures.
