Guiding Light Mission making a difference

Outside of building

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) One thing that’s hard to talk about during the holidays is addiction. It affects so many of us and is difficult to overcome. Whether it’s you personally or someone you love, the road to recovery can be a struggle and we know it starts with a step toward the future.  Right now there’s an organization in West Michigan that’s helping men stay on that path, Guiding Light Mission is celebrating one year of it’s transitional housing program called “Iron Horse”.  One man shared his story, and with the help of Guiding Light Mission, he has a brighter future.
