We will be volunteering at the new Women’s Transitional House. They are trying to get the house finished for a dedication ceremony on July 12, then plan to get women and children moved in right away. Work could include yardwork, cleaning, home repairs, or painting. 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 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.
