"Knowing our guests receive at least one hot meal a day nourishes my soul."

"Being at Lantern Light has helped me more than I have helped the guests. I truly feel a spiritual connection with each person I see daily. It makes me more humble and I hope I'm giving off the same vibes."

The mark of a good social worker can often be found in an individual that possesses the 3 C’s, caring, creative, and confident. All of these great qualities are found in Lantern Light’s social worker, Catheryn Major. Initially, Ms. Major joined the agency as an intern, and was later asked to join our staff upon obtaining her Master’s Degree in Social Work. She used her confidence and creativity to quickly learn the ins and outs of the organization, and with a caring heart, she has won the trust and admiration of the many guests for whom she provides various services to everyday. Ms. Major is a true asset to Lantern Light and we applaud her efforts to help enhance, empower, and enrich the lives of the individuals that she serves.
