New Economic Analysis by the Center's Research Team Demonstrates the Benefits of Lighthouse Youth & Family Services' Work
For more than half a century, Lighthouse Youth & Family Services has improved the lives of children, youth and families in Ohio by providing them with a wide range of services. Established in 1969, Lighthouse services include mental and behavioral health, juvenile justice, shelter and housing assistance, residential treatment, early intervention, and foster care and adoption. Lighthouse Youth & Family Services commissioned the Alpaugh Family Economics Center’s research team to study the benefits and costs resulting from services provided by Lighthouse in Hamilton County, Montgomery County, and Ross County, Ohio, in fiscal years 2012-2019.
