Proceeds from Light a Light of Love will benefit the Waymakers' Huntington Beach Youth Shelter, which since opening its doors eleven years ago has helped over 1,300 homeless, runaway and struggling Orange County youth and their families between ages 11 and 17, most who are trying to cope with issues kids should never face, such as early-childhood trauma. The trained staff has an excellent success rate of reuniting children with their families, at nearly 90 percent, by finding solutions to their very complex problems. 
The Shelter's mission runs much deeper than just a place to stay, as they provide a place for homeless, runaway and at-risk youth 24/7, 365 days a year. As emergency crisis and intervention programs, the Waymakers' Huntington Beach Youth Shelter aims to achieve: family strengthening and reunification, homeless prevention, diversion of at-risk youth from the juvenile justice system, and school drop-out prevention. In addition to providing youth with a safe haven and protection from the dangers of the streets, the shelter also provides youth and their families with professional comprehensive services including individual, group and family therapy, academic support, job/career readiness, life skills and aftercare.
