A presentation from Guiding Light Ministries was put on Monday afternoon. Guiding Light is a homeless shelter that gives women and children a place to stay, and gives adults the tools they need to learn how to effectively manage a home of their own and get back on their feet.

A few of the people that once stayed at Guiding Light were also there, to show that there is a chance for anyone to bounce back.

Guiding Light has two homes available for women to stay in.
