My experience at the Mission was my first opportunity to get to know God. Prior to coming to the Mission, I had no faith whatsoever, but within the New Life Program and the nightly chapel meetings, I began to build a foundation in faith that would lead me, not only to recovery, but to a life and sense of joy and purpose that I never thought possible… Eventually I completed a six-month rehab program and since then my life has been unbelievably wonderful. My experience at the Lighthouse Mission influenced me in a positive way that ultimately led me to seek help. Thank you.
