Founded in 2001 by Susan Begin Youth Director at Second Baptist Church in Suffield, CT., an American Baptist church where we put vibrant faith into action in our modern world as "doers of the Word."  The Light of Hope Mission to the Dominican Republic is focused on connecting youth in the United States with clinics and schools in need in the Dominican Republic.  Supplies are carried to the Dominican by the volunteers on each trip.  Please help to support our mission by donating below or by donating the supplies listed on our "Needed Supplies" page.
