The Youth Program at Grace House serves girls ages 6-18 who have been removed from their parental homes and placed in state custody. These girls are provided with 24/7 care. Our goal is to create a family atmosphere for each girl - homecooked meals, daily devotions, and live-in house parents are just some of the features of our Youth Program.
Our current capacity for girls ages 6-18 is 10 girls in 2 homes.
Grace House 2 - Opened in 2001
Currently houses up to 10 Elementary and Middle School aged girls
Grace House 3 - Opened in 2002
Currently houses up to 10 High School aged girls
Established in 2014, the Transitional Living Program extends Grace House services to girls ages 18-24 who are aging out of the foster care sytem. For girls who grow up in foster care, families don't magically appear when they turn 18, nor do resources that have been absent since childhood suddenly become available.
Grace House provides a continuum of care: further guidance and structure for the girls before they assume complete independence. TLP girls work with a licensed social worker and life coach to develop measurable goals related to their education, career, and emotional well-being.
8 of the girls in TLP live on the Grace House campus, while another 15 girls reside off-campus. These 23 girls are provided with the support every young person needs for a successful transition to adulthood, including tuition assistance, living stipends, and life-skills training.
