Guiding Light Mission, Inc.
December 10, 2010

Guiding Light Mission is an excellent organization. I've been a Board Member, Volunteer (primarily as a Mentor) and a donor over the years. All of the programs are Christ centered and are designed to help the men get re-engaged back in to their families/work/community. People are fed, have a place to stay overnight, and the Addiction Recovery Program is where the men have the most life changing experience.

Alumni come back to help.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The graduation rates. The men who have come back to say "Thanks". Seeing hearts melt and mend. Lifestyles change.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask for more community involvement from local Pschologists and mental health therapists. These men hurt deeply and need help moving-on / healing from their pasts. Most of the men come from broken families; abusive parents; non-existant or distant parents; addiction abuse by parents and family members etc. It takes a community.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I have been a mentor; and Board Member.
