Rachel’s Hosue, a ministry of Lower Lights Ministers and a Mission Support Grant recipient, provides a place in Columbus, Ohio for women to re-enter society after leaving prison. This is a vital transition. The Ohio Department of Corrections lists the total recidivism rate at 34%. That means that with in three years, a third of released inmates are back in jail.

Rachel’s House is just one of Lower Lights’ ministries. For the last 13 years,  Lower Lights has celebrated the work of all its ministries with a dinner called, “Celebration of Hope.” This year’s dinner takes place on Thursday, September 21, 2017. It is accompanied by a silent auction and program.

At “Celebration of Hope“, Lower Lights highlights people whose lives have been changed through its ministries. Heather and Linda are two of those people. Both are graduates of Rachel’s House, and both found more than just a transition from prison to employment in their experiences there. They found love and acceptance, which they are now sharing with others. They are impacting a broken world.

This month, with them and with Lower Lights Ministries, we celebrate hope.
