The Lighthouse Beloved Community (LBC) strives to move individuals and families from housing instability to home ownership. The LBC aims to achieve this by creating permanently affordable, community-controlled housing, plus ongoing support for successful homeownership. Through fostering healthy and supportive interpersonal relationships, another wealth is gained called community.
Lighthouse Beloved Community will embody the dream cast by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He spoke often of a beloved community as a way of transforming people and relationships and creating communities grounded in reconciliation, friendship and human dignity.
Lighthouse Beloved Community CLT believes that it is essential that all aspects of housing be reflective of the diversity of the communities that they serve and that LBC CLT strives to become and remain culturally and linguistically competent. A culturally and linguistically competent housing incorporates skills, attitudes, and policies to ensure that it is effectively addressing the needs of individuals and families with diverse values, beliefs, and sexual orientations, in addition to backgrounds that vary by race, ethnicity, religion, and language.
At LBC CLT, we believe embracing different perspectives, experiences, identities, and cultures is what makes us strong. Diversity enhances our ability to better serve, connect and respect our participants. Diversity allows us to cultivate a safe and positive work environment where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to the workplace. Diversity also gives us the opportunity to make a positive and lasting impact in our communities. There is more work to be done in creating a culture of equity, positivity, acceptance, and respect; and we welcome your involvement with our journey.
Lighthouse Beloved Community CLT is committed to advancing an anti-racist agenda and promoting housing equity. We affirm the importance of advocacy and recognize that racial injustice has caused trauma and harm to disenfranchised communities. We acknowledge that combating racism and inequity is an ongoing commitment. The impact of economic, clinical, and environmental disparities, including diverse linguistic needs, may hinder the opportunity to access and receive quality and equitable housing. Thus, we remain devoted to addressing discrimination, stigma, and other social and moral determinants of health, leading by example and educating our affiliates and communities. Together, we stand united in support of racial justice and the intersection of affordable housing, and the well-being care of humanity.
"In the Beloved Community, poverty, hunger and homelessness will not be tolerated because international standards of human decency will not allow it. Racism and all forms of discrimination, bigotry and prejudice will be replaced by an all-inclusive spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood."
- Martin Luther King
