Imagine for a moment waking up to the sinking feeling of knowing you’ve lost everything you own to a fire the night before. What if you were blind sighted by your husband or wife’s diagnosis and the crushing debt from their treatment? These are the true stories of GRACE clients, like David, who lost his wife unexpectedly shortly after losing his livelihood. Through tears, he explained that the morgue wouldn’t release her body until expensive funeral arrangements were made. Not being able to bury his wife left him in agony.
