• Moreover, “Light the World” seeks to offer practical solutions to the above-mentioned challenges by connecting individuals with valuable community resources.


• Increasingly our local communities are burdened with physical, emotional and mental stressors.WHAT WILL LIGHT OF THE WORLD DO?

• Focus on behavioral health and its associated illnesses.

• Shed “light” to this often-misunderstood disease to potentially assist in eliminating shame, guilt and embarrassment for those facing this challenge.

The battles of life are real so arm yourself with the best tools possible to FIGHT FOR YOUR LIGHT!!
