Making a Difference…

Good News! We welcomed our first family into Grace House and not only are we incredibly proud of the progress our mom has made in such a short time, but more importantly, she is proud of herself!

In only one month she has checked goal after goal off her list; first drivers permit ever, enrolled in college courses, volunteering, attending parenting courses, and other personal goals.
