Lighthouse Mission's flagship building houses the Ascent Program.

Ascent Program

Walking alongside men in the healing process towards a transformed life.

It is our goal to work diligently to equip and empower men for long-term success in life and help to restore every aspect of their life: mind, body, and spirit.

The Ascent Program is a nationally certified provider of the Genesis Process & Programs, an evidence based relapse prevention program for substance use and other self-destructive behaviors. The program combines biblical teachings with evidence based clinical practices to heal many of the wounds that afflict our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Equipping men for the future with:

  • One-on-one case management
  • Connecting to resources for education, legal support, job training, & housing
  • Classes in recovery, life skills, finances, and spiritual growth
  • Work therapy – men participate by helping out around the Mission
  • Behavioral health stabilization
  • Substance use treatment
  • Building a community support network
  • Prayer, discipleship, and pastoral counseling


Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided every day.
