I'm joined by Cheryl Schuch of Family Promise of Grand Rapids and Stuart Ray of Guiding Light Mission. Joining them are Amy and David who have been helped by their organizations.

We chat about this mission of their organizations and how they help those who are homeless in our community get back on their feet, the leading causes of homelessness and the stats for homelessness in our community.

Amy and David candidly share their stories of being homeless and how they were able to get back on their feet through the help of Family Promise and Guiding Light and advice they have for others struggling with a similar situation, what people need to know about homelessness that they may not know, homeless camps in Grand Rapids, a younger homeless population, the average stay for folks being helped by their organizations, what inspired Stuart to leave the business world to help those who are homeless, what Family Promise does to help families stay intact that are experiencing homelessness, what our community can do to support their organizations, and more……
