About

Grace Centers of Hope is a Faith based comprehensive 1 year rehabilitation center for people who are struggling with homelessess and or drug/alcohol addiction. We also have women and children who have been victims of domestic violence. Once the residents have successfully fulfilled the requirements for graduation, they are able to move into a transitional housing program with affordable housing where the residents may live up to 2 years while being acclamated back into the community.. The homes which are used are currently under renovation. These homes which are located within walking distance of Grace Centers of Hope were previously used as drug houses. We were able to acquire these houses and with the donation of materials and the help of dedicated volunteers, have been able to restore them while keeping the original character of these 100 year old houses. There is inside work as well as outside work to be done. We currently have a need for licensed plumbers and electricians as well as Construction Workers/Carpenters to assist on some of the projects. We would love to hear from you.

Bring your family, friends or company for a day devoted to serving in our "Little Grace Village". We own over 10 homes on Seneca Street, where our residents can choose to go after graduating our one year life skills program. Various projects are available to choose from.

Depending on the size and scope of the project outside funding may be required
