About Lighthouse For Children
Lighthouse for Children is the home of programs, services and training opportunities in support of young children and their families. Community partners offer families a learning environment where they feel safe, supported, and prioritized. This three-story community building houses the Child Development Center, the Community Learning Center, conferencing and office space for community agencies, as well First 5 Fresno County’s administrative offices.
First 5 Fresno County, the owner, formed Lighthouse for Children, Inc., a non-profit tax-exempt entity. Lighthouse for Children, Inc. applied for the New Markets Tax Credit Program established by Congress to spur revitalization efforts of low-income communities across the United States. Through this program, financing assistance was obtained for the construction of the Lighthouse for Children facility in downtown Fresno.
