I have known the Director of Lighthouse, Andy Batten since 2009, as a fellow member of the Neighborhood Leadership Program at Cleveland State University. Andy had been nominated for the program because of his demonstrated passion, commitment and integrity. Leadership is critical for the success and vision of any organization. I believe that Andy Batten demonstrates the leadership and vision that will propel Lighthouse forward as it continues to reach and touch the lives of youth and families in the Greater Cleveland area...and beyond.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Include more arts!
General Member of the Public & Helped to plan arts intervention programming for youth.
