Our Story

Newly sober and living together in a halfway house, co-founders Michael Jones and John Bowden both experienced over a decade ago what it's like to be new residents at a Sober Living Home. There were fourteen people living in a four-bedroom home, near constant relapses, little sense of community or staff engagement, and a "one-size-fits-all" methodology.

Afterward, Bowden went to work in design and marketing, and Jones started a career in Addiction Aftercare, specifically focusing on Sober Living Home operations. In 2016 they partnered to create Lighthouse, an intentionally designed, individually tailored, and community-focused approach to aftercare.
