WELCOME

As of July 2022, we are giving our web site a face lift. We invite you to come back often and welcome you to our website. Please check out all the links and latest news. We'd love to meet and greet you during these times of fellowship. We know your lives are just as busy as ours and it is always wonderful to get to know the people who contribute to our ministry.

ABOUT US

We managed to survive Super Storm Sandy and have become the largest emergency food provider in the Coney Island area. More recently, we faced the COVID-19 pandemic head-on by continuing to provide service to our community by parterning with DoorDash. The Coney Island Lighthouse Mission is dedicated to fighting hunger and poverty in our community through the many services we provide to those in need. For those families in need of food, we distribute free grocery bags two days a week and serve hot meals to the public every Wednesday & Friday evenings. We are currently serving over 5,000 people every month. Our after-school program began in 2007 and provides homework assistance and tutoring, hot snacks, games, art projects, and bible study for students aged 5-13 Monday-Friday. In addition, the Lighthouse Mission conducts special holiday outreach programs such as distributing hundreds of Thanksgiving turkeys in the community.

Our mission is to meet the immediate needs of our clients while offering additional, necessary services to help move families toward self-sufficiency. We provide information on public benefits to reduce the dependence on emergency food. We want to be known as the place to go for anyone in need in our community!
