Lighthouse Transitional Care is a Christ-focused nonprofit organization in Riga, Latvia. We work with young adults recently aged out of the orphan care system or from difficult family backgrounds to ensure healthy, productive adulthood. We do this by building relationships, discipling and teaching practical life skills.
The Lighthouse, founded in 2017, is not a physical place, but a family for the fatherless. Our founder is originally from Texas but began this work when, during a series of short-term mission trips, she saw a need for transitional care in Latvia. Our staff and board members are American and Latvian but united by a shared passion for caring for young adults in need.
