Stories of Transformation

Donnie's Story

“There aren’t many places where you can come from active addiction or straight from a park bench and walk through the front doors and immediately feel loved. Each one of these staff members know my name. Every one of these staff members prays for me. That’s the difference. We aren’t just a number. We are part of a family. They want to see you succeed. The blessings that come from Light of Life are just breathtaking.”
– Donnie, Men’s Life Recovery Program Graduate

Donnie was a well-respected ER nurse and paramedic for years before he came to Light of Life. Even after he lost everything, he still thought everything was okay. When Donnie came to Light of Life for the second time, he knew he needed to make a change and immediately leaned into the staff that was there to support him on his journey.  While he had past hurts with religion, Light of Life showed him that there is no judgment, only love and hope for him.
