Lifelong Drug and Alcohol Addiction Recovery for Women
Light House Women’s Recovery Center Vocational Training
At The Light House, we teach struggling women to ‘learn to earn’ by providing them with job training and requiring them to obtain paid employment before graduation from our drug and alcohol addiction treatment program. Women do work experience training 2-8 hours per week. Our philosophy of hands-on work experience as a part of the recovery process includes these vocational opportunities:
Women work at various business locations each week, learn new skills, and prepare themselves for self-sufficiency as an adult. We are recognized by the city of Fresno and referred by them for worksite and welfare opportunities.
Coffee Shop jobs
Cornerstone Coffee Company, our downtown coffee shop offers Fresno locals great coffee, hospitality, and a social hub to customers. We provide training for women in all aspects of the business. 100% of purchases support Light House women.
Clothing is made by women in our program recovering from drug and alcohol abuse. Each item is sold with one woman’s story on the tag. Plus, we train women in all phases of operations with the social enterprise of Light-WEAR, equipping them for employment, boosting skills and self-confidence.
Light House Thrift jobs
Quality products are available at an affordable price. We train women in all aspects of the business. (100% of purchase supports Light House women.)
Home Ownership Cohort
We help women move from “HOMELESS to HOMEOWNER” through new partnerships with local realtors, lenders, and title officers. Alumni who stay the course with employment and good financial stewardship work closely with this team of professionals and receive the keys to their new home!
