Christmas is fast-approaching, and GRACE Transitional Housing is looking to house three families in our Nash location before it arrives! With only two weeks left, we need assistance turning these houses into homes for our wonderful new families.

Several of GRACE’s regular groups who prepare these units are unavailable due to the holidays. However, we do not want to wait until the new year to get them settled. To have these families in a safe, warm place of their own before Christmas would be the greatest blessing we could give them.

For those who have not participated in this aspect of the Transitional Housing program, volunteers are needed to clean, furnish and decorate the space to transform it into a home fit for each family. GRACE Transitional Housing managers will provide volunteers with a list of needs for each unit.

GRACE provides several resources to make the process more convenient for our wonderful volunteers, such as vouchers to shop for furniture and décor at our resale stores, complete bed set up (mattress, box spring and rails), as well as constant support for any needs or questions along the way.

If you or anyone you know is interested in helping with these units, please reach out to Stacy Pacholick at, Martisha Smith at, or René Oldfield at They are ready and excited to dive into the process with you. Thank you for your consideration and spreading the word!
