What started as a livestream for individuals battling substance abuse and their families has transitioned into a new weekly podcast. HOPE Sheds Light, based out of Toms River, is a family-focused nonprofit that has been supporting those impacted by addiction. It was founded by three men whose sons lost their battle with substance abuse. The podcast, "Rise with HOPE," is available on all platforms.
