Share It.

Lighthouse Counseling and Family Resource Center

Mission Statement
Our mission is to strengthen families and improve the physical and emotional well-being of residents of Placer County by providing counseling, education, and easy access to community based resources.

Background Statement
Lighthouse began in 1996 as a vision of key players from California State University Sacramento (CSUS), the Western Placer Unified School District (WPUSD), Placer County Office of Education (PCOE), Placer County Health and Human Services and the City of Lincoln.  The challenge was the historical lack of social services in the Lincoln/Sheridan community and the reluctance of many of the residents to go to Roseville or Auburn to seek county health, mental health and other social services. Lincoln/Sheridan had been identified as a "pocket area" of the County, meaning that it is an area of high poverty with other at-risk indicators, including high rates of youth on probation and teen pregnancy and birth.  The vision was to provide free, comprehensive mental health, health and social services to the residents of families served by the WPUSD.

Today, much of the initial vision for Lighthouse has been realized.  We provide full-service counseling, advocacy, job assistance, women's support groups, parenting classes, wellness classes, nutrition classes and more.  The Placer County Women Infant and Children (WIC) program and a public health clinic are housed in our offices, helping us to be a one-stop shop for our clients.  Each year, Lighthouse serves almost 3,000 people of the community.

In 2013, Lighthouse won the "Best Non-Profit Award" given by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce.  The community voted and Lighthouse won "Best of the Best 2013" from the Lincoln News Messenger in the categories of overall non-profit and in customer service.  Also, Lighthouse won "Best in Collaboration on a Long-Term Basis" from the Placer Collaborative Network.  Lighthouse enjoys a solid reputation for providing quality, professional, caring, collaborative services to the Placer Community.
