Helping Each Child Find Their Own Light

  • Working to support the children and youth of Newtown in a safe, non-violent environment now and for many years to come

  • 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.


What we do


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.



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.
