Mission Guiding Light Mission exists to provide a healing community that allows broken individuals to discover a new life in Christ. We provide food and shelter while equipping men with social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual skills, thereby preparing them to serve. Vision Inspired by Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, Guiding Light Mission aspires to give Spirit-filled leadership to restoring men’s God-given dignity, value and self-worth as broadly and widely as possible. Within sanctuaries of hope, innovation and excellence, to the full extent of our material and strategic resources, we seek to break the personal cycle of homelessness, addiction and displacement from healthy community that burdens our society.
