Benefits of Partnership Businesses know that a strong sense of community builds quality of life. One of the best tools for revitalizing our communities is by caring for those most in need. Generous support from corporations helps Lighthouse fulfill its mission. Companies large and small have provided financial and in-kind donations, and corporate leaders serving on our Board of Trustees help guide Lighthouse through today's rigorous economic climate.
Our corporate partners also benefit from working with Lighthouse. They have found great success in reaching our community by demonstrating that they care about our Oakland County neighbors in need.
"Our company first became involved with Lighthouse during the Holiday Adopt-a-Family program. We adopted 3 families that year and everyone joined in. It was such a great experience that many employees wanted to keep giving throughout the year. We've hosted small fundraising events and donated the proceeds; we've painted an empty apartment for a new homeless family to move into; and some of our HR staff worked with Lighthouse staff to provide resume and interviewing training through Center for Working Families. Working with Lighthouse has increased staff morale and our company's community outreach mission." Lindsey - HR Manager, Auburn Hills, MI
