LAMPLighter History

In 1986, as Metropolitan Ministries completed their first residential home, a group of women realized that the children needed special attention.

This is when the LAMPLighters were formed to give love and attention to these precious children as their parents transition. Our mission and scope has grown and evolved since then.


We were proud to have a display at the Tampa Bay History Center April through July 2022

Looking Back While Looking Forward

With a growing membership, the LAMPLighters are able to make greater impact on the community with each coming year.  Each year, the LAMPLighters evaluate the needs of displaced families and children in the community and dedicate their efforts towards meeting those needs. We have been able to make a difference in the lives o these children in need, and we will continue to pursue our mission with enthusiasm and love.
