Helping People See the Hope

Light of Hope (LOH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ministry assisting individuals and families facing the struggle of substance misuse/addiction & providing drug prevention education to our schools & communities. LOH provides guidance in resource assistance, encouragement support groups, grief support groups, life building classes, monthly speaker panels, and community drug prevention education. In a partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), LOH provides schools with student assembly & group presentations, as well as parents, teachers, & staff continuing education. 

Knowledge is power, and support is strength. Together, we are helping people see the hope. 

LOH services include our two main focuses. Recovery support & Prevention education. 

Recovery support groups include encouragement support groups (focused on substance misuse/addiction issues), grief support, child loss support, Veterans support, grandparents support, basic finance class, and resource assistance. LOH wraps around the individual or family and provides them with guidance as we empower them with healthy growth both mentally and physically. LOH works closely with the State Northeast Oklahoma Workforce Development Board to help participants get back into the workforce. 


Light of Hope prevention education includes schools, businesses, churches, and community education. One of Light of Hope's greatest missions is to focus on educating and equipping our children on how to handle the reality of what they face in this world today. Drug education and prevention are critical to the future of our children. Light of Hope is providing school drug education and prevention in the Elementary, Middle and High Schools, through powerful assemblies, group & classroom education, and parent/teacher education. This is offered to any grade level.

Light of Hope is exclusively partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in this prevention mission. 

LOH received the DEA 2020 National Community Drug Awareness Award, as well as Congretional awards, and many other award recognitions. 

Light of Hope is very grateful for our ability to be a light and a resource for our State. Layla Freeman is the Founder/CEO and has a deep desire to restore lives and provide hope. Her passion stems from her own experience, having lost her 23 year old daughter to the devastation of addiction on Christmas Eve of 2013.

It's what people don't see, that matters. We know that Light of Hope is making a huge difference behind the scenes, by helping in areas we publicly do not see.

Thank you for educating my son at Inola Middle School. He's in 6th grade. He is really listening and thinking about all you have taught him.

Light of Hope saved my life. If it weren't for them loving me and helping me through difficult times, I don't know where I would be.
