Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation September 2022 News

Meet Beth Ehrhardt, Our New Executive Director

Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation announces Beth Ehrhardt as Executive Director. Ehrhardt joins Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation with extensive non-profit healthcare experience, most recently holding the role of President of the Senior Charity Care Foundation in Utah from 2012-2021, an organization focused on bringing mobile dental, vision, and hearing care to seniors in need.

“Ensuring access to programs and services that allow those who are less fortunate to thrive has always been a major focus of my work. I have been lucky enough to work on behalf of missions that understand the needs of the communities they serve, and I enjoy seeking solutions addressing the most significant challenges collaboratively for the underinsured and uninsured,” said Executive Director, Beth Ehrhardt. 

"I am excited to continue my life mission to effect meaningful change that improves the lives of individuals. I remain committed to building upon the strong foundation of the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation and Lions Clubs across Georgia to build a better tomorrow for Georgians by bringing individuals into a world of improved sight."
