We are a church social ministry offering support to individuals recovering from alcohol dependency.
This is a joint project between Iglesia Internacional Reformista, Inc. (NJ) and the Education Freedom Network of America, LLC., duly registered institutions in the State of New Jersey, USA. The program is FREE during the COVID-19 pandemic, if done in your own home. You only pay $45.00 registration in Phase I and $45.00 registration in Phase II, and if you are interested, you pay for the Certificates of Recovery listed below.
Lights of Hope also offers participants, (if there is space, as it is quite limited), the DON PEDRO MISSION for a temporary time at a reasonable cost while obtaining a permanent living place.
If you suffer from alcohol dependence, we offer you the opportunity to recover from your dependence by following instructions from our Life Coach. Lights of Hope works as follows:
