COVID-19 Updates


The Lancaster County Covid positivity rate for this week, April 2-April 8, is 8.7%. This means Lighthouse will remain open for all services through the next week as we continue to monitor the numbers for the coming weeks.

Beginning on Monday, November 23, 2020, Lighthouse is temporarily shutting down its facility as a precautionary measure to support the safety of our community.  In response to the 11.3% COVID positivity rate in Lancaster county, now considered substantial, the Office of Developmental Programs has strongly recommended that all providers like Lighthouse shut down. Lighthouse’s decision to shut down has been made under this guidance as well as much prayer and seeking of counsel from the board and leadership team.   


Lighthouse will still offer Remote Services, as well as off-site Community Participation Supports (CPS) and Employment Services.  Participant families will be contacted on Monday, November 23 by their Program Specialists to discuss options for service during the shutdown.  If you have questions about services throughout the shutdown, please contact your Program Specialist or Brian French at   You can also leave a message at 717-354-0355 or


Thank you for your continued prayers for well-being for all, and for God’s guidance for Lighthouse.  We appreciate you!  We are praying for you too, and may God’s peace be with you. 

After many months of prayer, quarantine and reflection, Lighthouse Vocational Services will be opening its doors for business as Lancaster County moves to the Green Phase.

We can only thank God for his guidance and provision during this time. The support we have felt from families, friends, donors and others can only be expressed through God’s hands at work.


We will begin a phased-in opening on Monday, June 29. We have taken many safety precautions as we plan to open. We have placed dividers on worktables to maintain social distance, enhanced cleaning practices, will be providing masks for participants and rearranged workspaces to accommodate our new way of life. We are excited to see our participants and begin supporting them in the work that we do.


Please continue to pray for us as we kick off this new season and as we continue “Shining the Light of Hope and Opportunity.”
