Helping Each Child Find Their Own Light

  • Created in honor of all we lost on 12/14/2012

  • Named in memory of 6-year-old Benjamin Wheeler and his love of lighthouses.

“This job of keeping our children safe and teaching them well is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community and the help of a nation.”

What we do

Workshops

Our Workshops utilize experts from the fields of psychology, social work, counseling, and religion. We will continually expose our community to a wide range of coping mechanisms and available support.

Community Building

Community Building events provide Newtown’s youth opportunities to celebrate life together; to remind them of the overwhelming amount of people they have from whom they receive love and support, in Newtown and beyond.

Outreach

Our Outreach commitment is based on the idea that “helping is healing.” Giving to those whose fortunes are flagging will give our youth some sense of perspective relative to their place in the world. Often intense and demanding, these experiences will leave them with the understanding that they, too, can be agents for change.
