The Grace Center, Inc provides a place for those in need to find welcome, shelter, and assistance in their desire to move out of poverty and into a sustainable life.
We offer homeless individuals and those in need a safe day space, access to food, medical care, and help with life skills and housing opportunities.
Executive Director, Rev. Tom Bentley says:
We planned to open up the churches to invite homeless folks who had no place to go during the day. What we found were neighbors and friends who were in crisis, homeless or struggling in difficult situations. They care about the same things we care about, struggle with similar issues, dream the same dreams, and they love the same things we all cherish. We created the Grace Center Inc. to give them a home during the day. A place to feel safe and work on their problems. We help them create and a pathway home to a new life. Join us. Help those in our community in need. You will be so glad you did”.
