March 2024 Collaborator: Health and Dental

Through prayer, relationship-building and sharing of resources, the Wheaton Franciscans collaborate with organizations whose mission and priorities are similar to ours. We focus primarily on the following areas: care of creation; health and dental in underserved areas; refugees and immigrants; women and children in vulnerable situations; and other purposes that align with our values. We are currently connected to nearly 100 organizations.

Lighthouse Foundation

St. Charles, IL

Lighthouse Foundation assists detainees post-release from the Kane County Jail and provides the tools they need to reenter the community in a positive way. The need they are addressing is the overall lack of community-based services for those recently released from incarceration and those lacking the financial means to seek treatment. The community-based program of the Lighthouse Foundation builds on the success and growth a detainee achieves while in-custody and allows certain detainees to be released from the jail with very strict monitoring guidelines and ongoing intensive substance use treatment.

For it is in giving that we receive.

St. Francis of Assisi
