Beacon of Light
California mandates sex education in public schools. Planned Parenthood supplies most of the state’s required curriculum on subjects such as STD’s, birth control, pornography, gender dysphoria and other explicit topics. Beacon of Light’s alternative, state-compliant curriculum shines a bright light on the TRUTH that Sex is a BIG DEAL with the goal of preventing life-long emotional and physical consequences of having sex at a young age.

Teen Leadership Foundation
Youth in the foster care system are some of the most vulnerable members of our county. Left to fend for themselves at age 18, these youth emancipate out of the government system with little to no advantage. Together through our partnership with the Grace community, we seek to support foster youth by providing a safe runway into adulthood using our housing, mentoring, and employment readiness programs. We invite you to continue alongside TLF in 2023, providing a new beginning for at-risk youth.
