light the way home house

Light the Way Home is a 12-36 month residentially-based, service-enriched housing program that empowers low to moderate income families to better their financial health, increase positive family interaction, and buy a home or attain market-rate rental housing. The program gives stability and accountability to families with the greatest need, empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and to contribute to the positive development of the Franklinton community.

Light the Way Home primarily serves two populations:
• Graduates of Rachel's House who are seeking family reunification or homeownership
• Low to moderate-income central Ohio families, including those experiencing homelessness

This individualized program provides housing and gives the participant families access to all of the services offered by Lower Lights Ministries. Light the Way Home utilizes a holistic, family-strengthening method, including supportive mentoring, case management, and peer support.

Other services include:

  • Supportive, single-family housing
  • Intensive life coaching and spiritual care
  • Homebuyer education
  • Financial management, education, and mentoring
  • Holistic recovery services (from substance abuse and codependency)
  • Crisis intervention
  • Employment education and career coaching
  • Personal academic tutors (for children and adults)
  • Access to neighborhood and community resources and services
