Working for Comprehensive Wellness Center in Lawrenceville, I see many patients that struggle financially. Recently we had a couple unable to pay for their care due to their washing machine failing on them. With young children, a washing machine was more than just a luxury to this couple. God's timing is so perfect that the first thing the next day Joe and Elva walked into our doors telling us about their ministry! I told them about this couple and they let me know that they were picking up a washer and dryer that afternoon! Not only were they able to significantly help this family, I was so blessed to witness it all! Lighthouse Mission is unlike any non-profit I've ever seen.

Gwinnett County's indigent population is so blessed to have the Lighthouse Mission. Those in need are able to acquire much needed cloths and home items at no cost to them. This truly is a blessing to many families who are struggling in our current economy. I give monthly to this wonderful charitable organization.

Joe and Elva certainly have the gift of servitude! The Eyes of Love Lighthouse Mission is a wonderful place that helps the needy in not only Bufford but other surrounding cities in Gwinnett County. They provide a safe environment for needy people to receive free clothing, furniture, and food. They are always in need of help with volunteers and donations which shows the level of service they are providing in this community. They are GREAT people and the Lighthouse Mission is a GREAT place!

This is one of the best charties Im aware of. They serve to help those who are in sometimes desperate situations and fill a need that very few organizations cover.

Eyes of Love Lighthouse Mission has truly been a blessing to those in need. I have volunteered there in the past and have seen several different families all with different needs be helped by the mission. I have seen parents go in for school clothes and supplies, families go in for summer or winter clothes, and families in need of extra food, and even people go in for clothes to go to a job interview. Everything donated is free of charge to the person in need. They are people who love God and who love to spread his word.

Eyes of Love Lighthouse Mission is run by a husband wife team who truly love people. They go above and beyond to help meet the needs of the people they serve. There are so many hurting people in our area and they have such big hearts to love people and try to help them as they can. Everything they have that is donated, they give away free of charge to those in need. This is so different than most missions who charge for what they give. They have helped set up households for those who have nothing. I am totally impressed with this ministry and the dedication of its leaders and the board that helps run it.

Eyes of Love Lighthouse Mission is truly an asset to the Buford, GA community. There are few places that you can go to when in need of food, clothing, furniture and receive these items free in order to fill the current need of an individual or family. My wife and I were recently at the mission where we were dropping off some clothes for others that might need them. Joe Padilla graciously showed us around the mission. At the time, his wife, Elva Padilla was helping a very pregnant expectant mother. This mom's due date was the next day! She had no infant clothing or diapers for this child. Lighthouse Mission was able to fill this mother's needs that day. What a great resource for the community!

Our church was helping a family during the Christmas holidays in 2014and found out they needed 3 beds and the accessories that went with them. Joe and his wife were kind enough to invite my wife and I to the mission to examine what they had to offer. We were impressed with their kindness and willingness to help. We were able to help this family with 3 beds that the mission was able to supply. They asked us if there were any other needs the family might have. They are caring and freely share in what they have.

Joe and Elva gave up their life in New Mexico to come to Buford, Georgia to open up a mission to serve the Buford and surrounding cities. They take donations of ALL kinds and then the public can come to their facility and get food, clothing and furniture, ALL for Free! They are amazing servants for God!!

Joe and Elva are great Christians and live their lives to serve the community and the needy in Metro Atlanta/Buford area. I've had the pleasure of volunteering at their mission and community events with them for 2.5 yrs and the influence, service and love they provide the community is amazing. Please hop on board and be part of the team.

We love Eyes of Love Lighthouse Mission. They are all about serving others. They give away clothing, household items and food to those in need. They have been where the people are, so they understand and can relate to those who are without. Joe and Elva are very loving and have a special spot in their hearts for those who are hurting and need a hand or a hug.
