There are two ways of spreading light:
to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.”

~Edith Wharton

Here at LumenSparQ, our mission is to spotlight our local heroes and provide support through financial, material, or human resources as best fit each situation. When we discover a local hero giving food and other necessities to families in need, we may support her with the person-power to package and distribute supplies. Support may also take the form of purchasing specific goods she may lack. If a local hero is providing after school classes for parents, we may help him with funding for new learning materials or through in-person professional development and coaching.

Because each hero’s story is unique, we stay flexible to support in ways where our strengths are the most impactful and our existing resources most helpful.

This website, along with our related social media outlets, will share the good work. We hope to inspire others, like you, to get involved. Come join us on this journey.
