"Giving hope where it has been lost, opportunity for those who want it, community for the lonely, and acceptance for all."
LovinGrace is a transitional housing facility for homeless young women, aged 17-24, that strives to move its residents from crisis to thriving through the implementation of programming and case management services designed to nurture personal empowerment and alleviate poverty through the identification and development of individualized self-sufficiency goals in the areas of education, employment stability, and access to services, financial matters, support systems, and resourcefulness.
LovinGrace provides a safe home for vulnerable young women. We, through targeted case management, provide education, health, mental health, employment and spiritual growth opportunities. We teach life skills such as: healthy eating, cooking, meal planning, keeping an apartment or home, cleaning, budgeting, being part of a community, and interpersonal skills.
Our purpose is to help each young woman recognize the potential, inherently inside them, to become independent, healthy, connected individuals after working through our program.
