Strongwater Farm is a therapeutic equestrian center out of Tewksbury, MA that offers programs to a wide range of individuals with physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges. Their clients include individuals with autism, veterans with a range of conditions such as PTSD, individuals with substance use disorders, and seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. For 2023, the Lightship team and clients financially supported Strongwater through donations and raised over $10,000. This helped cover the cost for hay for all 15 of their horses for the upcoming winter months. In addition to the donations, Lightship and client volunteers participated in a volunteer day at the farm to help clean up their grounds after a summer of heavy rains.
Birthday Wishes is committed to making a difference in homeless children’s lives. Birthday parties provide the opportunity for reflection, celebration, and hope. While most children look forward to their birthday parties each year, homeless children and teenagers may not get the chance to celebrate.

With help from friends and clients, Lightship was able to sponsor the items needed for the birthday boxes and build the boxes for 200 children and teenagers.
