Grace Centers of Hope Volunteer Event

We will be volunteering in Little Grace Village working in the gardens and doing some cleaning at one of the houses to prepare for a new tenant.  Please dress accordingly and bring work gloves if you would like.

Grace Centers of Hope has pioneered a fresh approach to ending and preventing homelessness by weaving together supportive services, safe and affordable housing, and neighborhood revitalization efforts. What once was a blighted neighborhood in downtown Pontiac, destroyed by drugs and prostitution, is now a growing community where children ride their bikes safely up and down the street. We call this transformed neighborhood "Little Grace Village". Consisting of 11 single and multi-family homes on Seneca Street in Pontiac, these houses have been purchased, restored to their original architecture, and rented to graduates of the One Year Life Skills Program at Grace Centers of Hope.

If you are interesting in bringing a donation with you, click here for a list of their needs.

    I had a great time and we were lucky to have such a beautiful day to be working outside. Mary Ann from Grace Center of Hope was an awesome lady and it was so nice of her to invite us to have lunch with them. Fun time even with all the scratches I got from battleling the rose bush!
