donate Lighthouse Children's Home welcomes donations in any amount, from both private citizens and local organizations in Tallahassee, FL. If you want to donate to children’s charity, we encourage you to recognize the efforts of our organization and the importance of our mission. We believe in bringing the power of faith and the structure of a loving, welcoming atmosphere to every young woman we take in. We depend on the kindness and generosity of donors to do this.

Become a Regular Donor

If charitable giving is part of your financial plan or personal creed, Lighthouse Children's Home urges you to consider becoming a regular donor. In addition to one-time donations, we also offer convenient options for monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual donations, in any amount you choose. It’s an easy way to give back and a wonderful opportunity to make an ongoing impact in the lives of girls who need our support.

Donate in Someone’s Honor

Many people choose to donate to charitable causes on behalf of someone else—a deceased relative, a long-time friend or in recognition of their moral fortitude. We offer the option to make a donation with a special message, giving you the opportunity to commemorate your donation in the name of someone worthy of recognition and praise.

Every Donation Matters

We’re far from the only charity in Tallahassee, FL—but like any other, we rely heavily on the kindness of strangers to help us succeed in our mission. When you donate to help children, you’re making a profound impact in their lives, no matter the amount. Whether it’s $10 or $10,000, we welcome every donation with the deepest appreciation in our hearts.

Bro. Billy Hudson – President

Our co-founder and current President, Bro. Billy Hudson is a retired law enforcement officer and has never taken a salary from the Home.

The Lighthouse Children’s Home has been in operation since 1977, having deep roots and partnerships in the Tallahassee community for all these years.

How are we funded?

We receive no state or federal funding and are totally dependent upon contributions from parents/guardians and from donations by individuals, churches, and corporations.

Cost of Care

We have never refused to admit a girl based on financial reasons. Our fees are set up on a sliding scale based on a family’s ability to pay. 

How is my donation used?

Monetary donations go directly into the home towards the needs of the girls, the facilities, and administrative costs.

Furniture, vehicles, appliances, and other items go into one of our thrift stores or car sales to be sold and all the funds are channeled back into the Home to be used as mentioned above.
