About Ben’s Lighthouse…

ben lighthouseBen’s Lighthouse was founded in 2013 in the name of Ben Wheeler and to honor the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012. Ben’s Lighthouse has fostered the potential in over 1,000 children to build a more compassionate and connected world. From service trips to Bridgeport and lower Fairfield County to national outreach experiences, Ben’s Lighthouse connects children and gives them the tools and self-confidence to find and share their own light.
