Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Lighthouse Christian Home’s vision is for a strong and efficient ministry, including:
The Lighthouse Christian Family Farm Home, which encourages and supports the choices of each individual resident to lead a life full of faith and purpose, while providing skills for personal growth and opportunities for each resident to minister to others.
The Family Farm Home facilities and environment as a model and hub for faith based programs and services, on site and within the community, which integrate additional, non-resident individuals and provide all participants the opportunity to experience God’s love.

Our strategies include habitilation plans for each participant of our program. These plans outline the individuals goals for purposeful life.

The structure of our organization is based on tried and proven programs that leads participants to their full potential.

Our accomplishments include extending our services into the community for individuals with disabilities. We aim to increase our programs, such as transportation ministry, volunteering with veterans in the community and increasing our animal husbandry skills to the community.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
