Hi Everyone -
I hope you and your family are safe and well. I know that we're all anxious about the COVID-19 pandemic, but I want to reassure you that we are actively monitoring guidance from our local, state, and federal officials about how to best keep our girls, staff, and volunteers safe.
The Grace House campus will remain closed (except to essential workers) until further notice. We will keep everyone updated as the situation continues to evolve.
Sadly, the abuse, abandonment, and neglect of girls hasn’t stopped because of a global pandemic. So neither has Grace House. We don't have the option to reduce our programs or shift to a virtual model. 28 girls rely on Grace House to meet their basic needs like food, clothing, shelter, and education every day: just like other children rely on their biological families.
We can social distance from the pandemic. Girls in abusive homes can't distance themselves from bad situations unless a place like Grace House gives them a safe home. The girls who call Grace House home are depending on us - and I promise you that with your continued support, we'll be there.

There are over 2,500 Alabama girls in foster care every year.
For over 25 years, Grace House has been providing stable, Christian homes for Alabama girls in foster care on our residential campus in Fairfield, AL.
Grace House's comprehensive approach seeks to end the cycles of poverty and abuse that are so prevalent in the lives of the girls that we serve by educating, equipping, and empowering them to become mature, Godly women.
