Where We Serve
The mission of Grace House is to provide stable Christian homes for girls from crisis backgrounds with the commitment to developing mature, godly women. During each girl’s stay she is taught to pack her eternal suitcase. The eternal suitcase represents her preparation to lead a productive life, thus breaking the cycle of poverty and abuse. Upon entering Grace House each girl is prepared for her future through counseling to overcome abandonment, abuse and trauma, tutoring to reach academic success, and biblical principles to live a victorious life.
The Youth Program at Grace House serves girls ages 6-18 who have been removed from their parental homes and placed in state custody. These girls are provided with 24/7 care. The goal is to create a family atmosphere for each girl- home cooked meals, daily devotions, and live-in house parents are just some of the features of the Youth Program.
Grace House also has a transitional living program which was established in 2014. The Transitional Living Program extends Grace House services to girls ages 18-24 who are aging out of the foster care system. For girls who grow up in foster care, families don’t magically appear when they turn 18, nor do resources that have been absent since childhood suddenly become available.
Grace House provides a continuum of care: further guidance and structure for the girls before they assume complete independence. TLP girls work with a licensed social worker and life coach to develop measurable goals related to their education, career, and emotional well-being.
8 of the girls in TLP live on the Grace House campus, while another 12 girls reside off-campus. These 20 girls are provided with the support every young person needs for a successful transition to adulthood, including tuition assistance, living stipends, and life-skills training.
