Bodman PLC is pleased to announce that Jonathan P. Burleigh, a member of the firm based in the Troy, Michigan office, has been appointed treasurer of the board of directors of Lighthouse MI.
Burleigh, who has served on the board since 2017, was also appointed to the board’s Executive Committee. He will continue his service as chair of the organization’s Emergency Food Distribution and Emergency Shelter Task Force.
Based in Pontiac, Michigan, Lighthouse MI was established in 2019 when Lighthouse of Oakland County (LOC) and South Oakland Shelter (SOS) combined forces and merged agencies. LOC was founded in 1972 and started with a group of volunteers who provided food and clothing from the back door of a local church. SOS was established in 1985 by seven religious congregations in Oakland County. Lighthouse MI leverages the best of both predecessor agencies, providing families and individuals in need with direct services, financial assistance, and stability and housing programs that develop and support self-sufficiency.
