Adorned in Grace Design Studio mentors are long-term volunteers who help prevent human trafficking by supporting, encouraging, and modeling the unconditional love of Jesus to young women. Through weekly workshops mentors establish trust, create bonds, and inspire the girls with hope for a better future. Just knowing that mentors care enough to choose to be with them fosters a sense of security and self-worth in the girls. In return, mentors learn from the girls as well!
The most important duty of a Design Studio mentor is simply building relationships: being consistent, engaging the girls in conversations about their lives, listening well, and pushing them to think critically about their futures. Other responsibilities include:
--Leading discussions and/or devotional time and facilitating group activities. --Planning with fellow mentors and the Site Coordinator for weekly snacks and activities that teach life skills, build relationships, and offer fun, creative outlets. --Praying for the girls and for fellow mentors and volunteers.

Our mission is to bring churches together to serve their neighborhoods. We do this through free health clinics for the underinsured and noninsured, anti trafficking efforts, and more. Our vision is to see churches and individuals everywhere choosing unity over division and compassion over complacency.
The brokenness and division in the world is too big for just one church, organization, or person to handle. We believe neighborhoods suffer when churches compete and passionate people don't have an outlet to serve, so we create tools that invite people to put their faith in action and unite churches to address their neighborhood's issues together.
We understand how it feels to see the suffering in your neighborhood and not know what to do about it-and to not know how your own talents and time could help alleviate that suffering. For the past ten years we have been mobilizing people of faith to serve together in their own backyards using proven models of service that have helped bring physical and spiritual healing to thousands of broken people.
Too often indecision, fear, and apathy cause us not to act. Too often, misunderstandings and disagreements cause the people of God’s Church not to work together to reach the broken and bring hope to a hurting world. If we let these barriers prevent us from doing anything, we miss out on the incredible things God is waiting to do in and through us. You may believe that you can’t do anything to address the problems in your neighborhood. But we want you to know that you can do this. And we want to help you get there.
