Guiding Light  in Grand Rapids has programs to help get homeless men back on their feet and back to work.

The Back to Work Program provides a short-term stay for men and women who are employed or seeking full-time employment, allowing them to save money while they look for permanent housing.

Along the way, Guiding Light provides men and women job coaching, training in techniques for searches, and daily encouragement and advice. There is access to a computer lab for online job searching, email, and creating a resume.

Back to Work also provides transportation and any other needs to help them accept a job offer that comes their way.

Another tool they use to help people find work is The Job Post, which is dedicated to recruiting, engaging and retaining talent through a culture that nurtures success, honesty and integrity.

Their goal is to help clients reengage in our community through jobs that provide an adequate income for stable housing and other basic necessities.

Guiding Light is located on 225 Division Avenue in South Grand Rapids. For more information on their Back to Work Program, call (616) 451-0236.
