The answer was always the same with doctors, "You know, we're sorry we can't help you if you want this school, you're just going to have to build it."

Marcia was so irritated with the doctors that it dawned on her that Sheryl hadn't said a word. Marcia noticed that Sheryl was sitting there with the most angelic-looking expression, and then it hit Marcia. She said, "Sheryl, we wouldn't even know where to start a school like that," Sheryl smiled and Sheryl said three words that I will never forget, "but God does."

As of today, we sit on the corner of 36th and Yale as a beacon of light in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and a place where miracles and milestones are achieved. We serve 116 families in our Development Center and currently serve 126 families in our Early Intervention Program, which benefits our students on our waitlist.

Come and enjoy an evening celebrating Little Light House's legacy at the Mabee Center on October 8th, 2022, from 6 PM- 9 PM. Let's celebrate and remember the past 50 years through food, music, and storytelling.

In Support of Little Light House

Little Light House is a Christian Developmental Center for Children with Special Needs from birth to 6 years old. Tulsa’s Little Light House is internationally recognized as providing some of the most individualized special education and therapeutic early intervention services in the world. A trans-disciplinary team approach maximizes a comprehensive knowledge from professionals who work collaboratively to design prescriptive programs for each child and assist every child in reaching their maximum potential. Through a variety of programs and schedules, these services are carried out by highly credentialed teachers, therapists, and specialists who represent decades of pediatric experience. Early Intervention classes are provided as a part-time program where caregivers attend and learn along with their child for two-hour classes once a week. 

Little Light House is tuition-free for families and does not receive government or United Way funding. Support comes from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations. In addition, LLH hosts four annual fundraisers each year bringing in about 40% of the $4.2 million dollar operating cost that allows our staff of over 90 members to provide services to over 300 children and families, support nearly a thousand volunteers, and train over 1,000 college and career students each year.

Little Light House believes that all children are a gift from God with the potential to achieve specific milestones to advance their quality of life. We strive for excellence by utilizing a Bible-based curriculum in a fun and loving atmosphere. We believe in an individualized, trans-disciplinary and God-centered approach to education-an approach that joins parents, professionals, and the Holy Spirit as partners in order to nurture the spirit, mind, and body of the children and their families. Our commitment incorporates being called to work/volunteer with children with special needs. Little Light House encourages a positive outlook on the future, based on trust in a loving heavenly Father.
