Mission: Grace House, foudned in 1999, grew out of the need to help troubled teens who were dealing with life controlling problems such as substance abuse, behavior problems, and juveniles problems. Many of these boys were brought to us after having been expelled from school or having failed because of these issues. Grace House was developed as a residential program that would house this teen for an extended period of time 1 - 2 years. Through educational and remedial work, through extensive counseling and therapy, and through family counseling, through recreational activities, and through family type dynamics we have been able to redirect these boys. Part of our success has been in educating parents on how to be better parents and how to cope with these issues. Our boys are now on the honor role at school and most have plans to attend college. Our goal is to return the boy to his home after having redirected the boy and changed the home.
