The GRACE Mission
As a steward of God's blessings and resources in our community, GRACE demonstrates compassion for those less fortunate by providing assistance to individuals and families in crisis and guidance toward self-sufficiency.
We have volunteer opportunities in almost every area of our agency. Whatever your passion, we have a place where you can have fun and help the community too.
While GRACE has seen a more than 40 percent increase in requests for assistance, we've also seen an almost equal decrease of individual contributions. If you can, please help.
DO YOU NEED HELP?
GRACE provides assistance to those who are suffering from chronic low income or those who've experienced a recent emergency. If you need help, you've already taken the first step.
SHOP GRACE RESALE
The proceeds generated by GRACE Resale help cover the operating costs of our agency. This allows a larger percentage of the donations we receive to go directly to clients.
Good Sunday morning! GRACE locations are closed today following our usual Sunday schedule. GRACEful Buys also remains closed owing to the icy conditions. We plan to reopen tomorrow at regular hours, however, stay tuned for any needed changes. For emergencies requiring immediate relief, please call our Client Services Hotline at 817-602-1204.
Your mail last week had a very special message from our executive director Shonda Schaefer. It is a message of thanks and hope—thanks and hope from the hearts of those we serve.
Shonda’s Thanks-SHARING message touches on the struggles of a mother and her daughter coming to GRACE after suffering years of abuse. The point of her story is not so much the help provided this mother and daughter, but the thanks they expressed to the staff and volunteers who changed their lives.
Their thanks—and their hope for a new life free the fear and despair—belongs to all who are a part of GRACE, especially those who support the GRACE mission with their donations.
When you receive your “Thanks-SHARING” letter, please take a moment to consider the good your donation can do for those who come to GRACE for help. And please share in the satisfaction and pride of providing food, shelter, clothing and healthcare to those striving for self-sufficiency.
