Grace Centers of Hope provides the basic necessities of life: food, shelter, and clothing. Most importantly, we sustain HOPE. All programs and services provided by Grace Centers of Hope are designed to contribute significantly to the reduction of homelessness, provide clients with opportunities for life-changing recovery, and to help break the inter generational cycle of poverty and abuse.
Grace Centers of Hope's vital programs include the Emergency Shelter, One Year Life Skills Program for Men and Women, Children's Programs, and the After-Care Program. All guests in our programs benefit from food and shelter services, counseling, life skills courses, vocational education, a drug-free work environment, and our state-of-the-art learning center. The results of our efforts have helped many to obtain a GED, become homeowners, regain their children, and, most importantly, develop the courage to change their lives.
The Emergency Shelter Program provides immediate assistance to the homeless in our community by making available food, shelter, clothing and other necessities. This relief program allows up to 40 men, women and Children to stay with us for up to 30 consecutive days. The primary objective of the Emergency Shelter Program is to offer homeless individuals and families a safe residence while seeking transitional or permanent housing. When appropriate, emergency shelter guests are encouraged to enter our one-year Life Skills Program.

This one-year rehabilitation program helps homeless women and families transition to stable housing, sobriety, and employment. The Life Skills Program is a Christ-centered, residential program that focuses on our "core issue" separation from God. Through mentoring and discipleship our goal is to reconcile residents back to God and give them the tools they need, in order to live a responsible, productive life that is free from addiction. This newfound freedom will allow our residents to enjoy all the benefits life has to offer.
Services in the Life Skills Program include:
Access to Education and Career Center
Hands of Hope Childcare Center
