Through the guiding light of God’s Spirit, Guiding Light Mission partners with individuals to fulfill their God-given potential through rescue, recovery and re-engagement in community

The Guiding Light Back to Work Program helps homeless or unemployed men become re-engaged in the job market through job coaching, resume creation, access to a computer lab and phones. Our program allows thirty days to find a job, but most find work within one week. The men stay at Guiding Light free of charge and save their pay for post-program housing. In the first three and a half years of this program, we have helped over 600 men re-engage with community to find employment.
The Guiding Light Recovery Program is tough but compassionate. The program is approximately six to seven months total, with active employment beginning in month 5. Afterwards, the men can apply to Iron House, our transitional housing facility in Kentwood, Michigan, At Iron House, up to twenty-four men can live in a safe environment as they participate in weekly fellowship and accountability with each other.
