Northwest Outdoor Lighting Brings Light To Dark Places
Many clients have said that Northwest Outdoor Lighting brings light to dark places. Usually people are talking about a corner of their property, gardens or another part of their home that needs illumination for either security or aesthetics. We are pleased to also shine light on charities and non-profit organizations who are also bringing light to dark places. By partnering with and supporting these charities, we seek to bring a light -- or even just a smile -- to very dark places in our city of Seattle, the US and around the world.
It is so important to us to do well by doing good, and to partner with those organizations who share the same dedication to efficiency and generosity. Therefore, we select charities with operating costs at or below 10%. This way we know that the money is going directly to the need. We love getting to know the charities and organizations that matter most to our clients, and are always seeking to support and engage with local charities who seek to light a candle rather than simply curse the darkness.

International Rescue Committee
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.
Hope Children’s Home
Founded in 1968, Hope Children’s Home has rescued nearly 5,000 children between the ages of infant to 18 years of age. Most of these children have been discarded, abused, unwanted, or orphaned although some of the children have simply come out of a situation where a parent just needed help. Our home is located in northwest Tampa, Florida on 55 beautifully wooded acres of land. Our campus consist of dormitories for the boys and girls that can house a total of 80 children as well as beautiful 4,000 sq. ft. cottages that care for our younger children and allowing siblings to live together. The children live in a family atmosphere with house parents who are with them twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to give guidance and encouragement.
Acres of Diamonds
Acres of Diamonds is a 20-year old local non-profit that gives that second chance. We provide the place, the love, and the guidance these women need to rebuild their lives and start anew. Our structured living plan, on-site counseling, discipleship, and life-skill training helps them re-establish their lives with purpose, confidence, and support.
Our program houses only women or mothers with children. They can stay for up to two years, and all residents pay a portion of their housing and are required to get jobs or go to school.
