Meet Our Light House Team

Vikki Luna founded The Light House Recovery Program, and since 2007, this faith-based program has served women recovering from alcohol and drug abuse. The Light House strongly depends on the support of surrounding communities for recovery services. To train women in workplace skills and help the organization financially, Vikki created two businesses in 2015, the Light-WEAR apparel line and the Cornerstone Coffee Company. A third business, Light House Thrift, launched in 2021. The Light House also receives financial and community support from caring business partners, corporate sponsors, and local churches.
