Michael is a former member of Guiding Light’s Back to Work program. He came through our doors after finding himself homeless after a job loss. “I didn’t care if I lived or died…I was hopeless, and then I started to regain hope that there was an up, and that I could make it.” After staying at Guiding Light for some time, he noticed an opportunity to “get his foot in the door here” when he learned that a position working front desk security became available. After getting hired in Michael felt a “sense of purpose” again and eventually moved up to become a Case Manager for Back to Work, the very same program that took him in.
