Spring Open House Provides Friends with a Look Inside Lighthouse

We were pleased to greet many new and old friends of Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center at our Wayne Center Open House on May 21!  Guests were impressed with the professionalism and comfortable welcoming atmosphere.  Because of our location on the back side of the 2025-2035 Hamburg Turnpike office complex, we have a confidential setting for those needing privacy as they seek help. The newly opened center has helped us extend our free services to a new area of Northern New Jersey and Passaic County, spreading out the reach of our three locations.

Guests enjoyed cake and other refreshments from Shop Rite of Oakland, and delicious snow cones from The Jolly Trolley, after touring our newest facility.  We were excited to share with them the spacious welcome area, ultrasound room, multiple counseling rooms, and a well-stocked material services room (our PREP Shoppe for new parents!) – furnished with some of our Hawthorne seating plus new pieces from our friends at Ashley Furniture HomeStore. Our expanded receptionist area – which doubled our desk space – made a great gathering place for guests!

We are so grateful to the Lord and to Florence Christian Home Center for the amazing provision of Suite L on Hamburg Turnpike. The reduction in our facility expenses is allowing us to reallocate our resources to save and change more lives. The one need we have is for more storage, as we lost our basement space in the relocation from Hawthorne, and are currently working on creative solutions. As we address our storage shortage, we have asked friends to hold onto their gently used clothing and larger material donations for May and June. We will let supporters know via Facebook when we are accepting these items at Rea Ave in Hawthorne again.

A huge thanks goes to Liz, Theresa and our Wayne Center staff and volunteers for their hard work behind the scenes to make the Open House possible!

If you are interested in volunteering at our Wayne Center, please contact Mary Kate at events@lighthouseprc.org or 973-238-9047 x10. Most office volunteer projects happen on Tuesdays and Fridays, when we are closed for client services. Please be aware that we strive to maintain a confidential setting on the other weekdays.

We so appreciate the continued support of donors who partner with us to save and change lives each day. Your generosity provides free life-enhancing services to those facing unplanned pregnancies, parenting struggles and other related concerns. Thank you!
