Each month, the GRACE staff meets to share a time of fellowship and catch up with everything that is going on around the agency. One of the last items on each month's agenda is a time to share "kudos"... a verbal "pat on the back" for a job well done or a "thank you" for going above and beyond the call of duty. We're very proud of the people who work within thesewalls and have decided to share with everyone the comments made each month. We hope you enjoy getting a peek inside!

For me, the GRACE mission started the summer that I served with Vacation Bible School at my church. All of the children did a canned food drive, and that morning a lady and her child happened to walk in seeking assistance from my church. That morning, I realized how desperate needy people in my community were...
and I felt very drawn to try to help.
