A Double Celebration!

30 Years! With deep appreciation we announce our Director and Founder Carla Burton’s decision to retire. Over the 30 years Grace Place has existed, Carla has had a positive impact on the lives of thousands of people. She has worked tirelessly to build relationships with Grace Place families, volunteers, Winona, and surrounding area. These relationships have established a strong foundation for the ministry and a huge positive impact on much of SE MN and Western WI communities. We are truly thankful for Carla’s leadership, commitment, and service. She is truly “one of a kind.”
