     Lighthouse for Broken Wings is a 501 ( C ) ( 3 ) nonprofit organization in Eastern Sussex County.
     The Lighthouse for Broken Wings addresses the critical needs of families,  children,  elders, and Individuals who are experiencing homelessness. Homelessness is not a disease. A society's homeless crisis derives from the shortage of housing, evictions, criminal background, lack of employment, minimal wages for employment, medical and mental health disorders, etc. Yes, there are other self barriers of destruction such as addictions and destructive behaviors.
    On the other hand, a natural disaster can destroy a home and/or employment such as the Covid-19 pandemics.   Many in our society is a paycheck from being homeless.
    Therefore, no one should judge a person who is pushing a shopping cart, sleeping in their cars, and dumpster diving, it may be you one day.
  The funding will provide food, drinking water, blankets, clothes, shoes, and most important of all provide temporary and permanent supportive housing in the dangerous seasons of the year.

Lighthouse for Broken WIngs has developed two programs to address the needs of individuals and families experiencing homelessness. The first program is Transitional/Permanent Supportive Housing consisting of 10 clients. The second program is "A Sheltering Heart" which provides temporary shelters during the dangerous seasons of the year, winter and summer. Both of these programs have served over 250 people. In 2021, two clients attended and graduated from Sussex Tech Adult School, and one family fixed their credit, purchased a house, and no longer experienced homelessness. In the season 2021 -2022 we are serving 60 clients in full-time temporary shelters, providing lunch and dinner each day, and most importantly, saving their lives from critical temperatures.
