In July 2015 Sarah Yore-Van Oosterhout opened the doors to Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates and began to address the needs for low cost immigration legal services and community-wide education. Since then, Lighthouse has served over 600 families with a growing staff of seven committed individuals. Over the past two years Lighthouse has hosted numerous events and presentations to help educate the community as well as continued to serve daily the needs of immigrants and refugees in the Holland area.

On December 8th, 2017, Lighthouse hosted a celebratory Thank You Dinner to honor two years of success and appreciate all who have supported Lighthouse and helped Lighthouse become what it is today. 

The event was held at Holland Area Arts Council from 6:00PM-9:00PM with Ultimate Catering providing a tapas-style buffet of cuisine from the home countries of many of our clients. Wine was generously donated from Fenn Valley Winery and various board members, and Hope College provided programs and the OTB Jazz Trio. The night was a success and we invite you to view pictures from the event. Click on the first picture to scroll through the images full screen. 

To all our donors, we at Lighthouse sincerely thank you.
