Our SHINE Station space at Annapolis Town Center is open through April 2024!

This donation and information space is staffed by volunteers available to take donations of food and other much needed items, provide information about the organization, and sell Light House Bistro baked goods. The space also includes an exhibit area for visitors to learn more about the work we are doing to break the cycle of homelessness in our community.
