GUIDING LIGHT’S IMPACT

Through the guiding light of God’s Spirit, Guiding Light partners with individuals to fulfill their God-given potential through rescue, recovery and re-engagement in the community.

KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Transparency at Guiding Light.

Guiding Light has a set of Key Performance Indicators or KPI’s which are used to evaluate the organization’s commitment and outcomes relative to our Mission Statement and Board developed strategies. These strategies direct the work of Guiding Light. Good to Great Non-Profits measure their activities and are committed to transparency. We encourage you to check our progress.

Guiding Light is pleased to announce that it has been awarded Platinum status by GuideStar, the world’s largest source of information on U.S. nonprofits.

The Platinum designation is the highest level bestowed by GuideStar, an honor shared by fewer than a dozen of the more than 2,500 nonprofits GuideStar tracks in the greater Grand Rapids area. The Platinum rating – instituted in the spring of 2016 – is GuideStar’s “highest level of recognition and an opportunity for nonprofits to share their progress in a meaningful way,” according to the organization’s website.
