Review for Heaventrain, Cleveland, OH, USA

Rating: 5 stars

This organization is an outstanding example of community service, organizational capacity and leadership. Lighthouse has been serving the residents of Northeast Ohio for 31 years by providing mentoring, tutoring and nutrition services to over 3,600 kids each week in the Central neighborhood. Lighthouse currently maintains and operates 14 summer nutrition sites and were recognized in 2009 by the Ohio Children’s Hunger Alliance as the Summer Nutrition program of the year.
