One of the most impactful moments in the GRACE calendar is the welcome a new Transitional Client receives when she first enters her new apartment. After several years of blessing homes over Zoom, old traditions were restored, and GRACE staff and volunteers piled into the small efficiency to wish clients well.

This week, GRACE was blessed to embrace two wonderful ladies into their new homes.

Representatives from Abiding Grace Lutheran Church in Southlake and White’s Chapel United Methodist Church were in attendance as well. Members of the congregation volunteer their time and expertise to fully renovate each apartment as one family moves on and another comes in. From the moment a client enters the program, all the furniture used in the space is theirs to take with them. This not only allows for less daunting expenses when a client graduates and finds a new home, it also provides a blank canvas for the next volunteer group to pour their time and creativity into.

Our thanks to the kind folks from Abiding Grace, White’s Chapel and all who come together to serve those who have nowhere else to turn.

The GRACE Transitional Housing program is truly where the GRACE continuum of care—food, shelter, clothing, and medical services—meet to change lives for the better. For more information about the GRACE Transitional Housing program, contact Martisha Smith at
