Physical and spiritual sight for Theroux – Thanks to YOU!
Going blind and in the throes of addiction to drugs and alcohol, Theroux was desperate for help. He found it at the Lighthouse Mission!
Your support provides hope, help, and healing
“At the Mission, I found people who cared,” said Theroux. At our Base Camp shelter, he was welcomed by caring staff and volunteers who helped him find his way around. The warm meal, shower, clean clothes, and comfortable bed were more than he could have asked for.
When Theroux entered the Mission’s Ascent Program, that’s when his recovery journey really began. His diabetes and eye condition were among the first issues that needed to be treated. He also received the support he needed to address his addiction.
“I decided I wanted to fight to keep my eyes, fight to see, fight to keep living,” he said. “Gaining back my sight was a spiritual wake-up call. I once was blind, but now I see.”
A brand-new life for Theroux—thanks to your support!
Today, Theroux’s medical conditions have greatly improved. He is in recovery and is growing in his faith every day. As an intern with the Ascent Program, he works at Base Camp and with the Outreach Team helping others.
“I see that man on the sidewalk with no tent, and I understand what he’s feeling,” said Theroux. He said it feels good to help people who are going through the same things he did while living on the streets. “I know what it’s like to feel real hunger,” he said. “I know how much food means. I know how much water means.”
Theroux’s goals are to continue to grow in his relationship with God and follow where He leads.
Thank you for all you make possible in the lives of neighbors like Theroux!
