Our people: Answering the call

Courtesy photo Clovis residents Gerri and Richard Gomez met over 30 years ago.

Clovis natives Richard and Gerri Gomez have run the Lighthouse Mission for nearly 25 years. Richard Gomez said the reason is simple.

“It’s a calling.”

Gerri Gomez said they do what they do “to give people help today and hope for tomorrow.”

The mission is a family affair with the original staff including several members of the Gomez family and today includes many of the Gomez’ children and cousins.
