Our Mission

At Presentation Lantern Center visitors are greeted by staff and volunteers. They receive a tutor with whom they study English; they learn practical life skills to use in a new country; they meet many people from other countries of origin; they share their stories and cultures; and they experience so much more … and all are blessed by their coming.
The Presentation Lantern Center opened in 2002 to welcome individuals from around the neighborhood and from across the globe. Services are free.
Educational Opportunities
Students work one-on-one with volunteer tutors to learn English and to prepare for the citizenship test.
The center empowers individuals to be advocates for themselves and their families and connects them to community resources.
