Grace does not just talk the talk, they walk the walk of their mission statement . "As a steward of God's blessings and resources in the community, GRACE demonstrates compassion for those less fortunate by providing assistance to individuals and families in crisis and guidance toward self-sufficiency.
Grace has engaged the community, volunteers and businesses who working together provide food, clothing, medical services and sometimes housing to those who need a leg up. Further demonstrating their pledge and compassion, Grace offers classes to help clients learn to grow their own food, prepare healthy meals on a budget and career development guidance to assist clients in becoming more self sufficient.
Grace's talented CEO, staff and volunteers are passionate and committed to helping fellow members of their community. It's the best run well organized and effective non profit organization I have had the privilege to be involved with.
Every person I talk to in the Grapevine, Colleyville, Southlake area, who has any connection to charitable giving, has used words like premier organization, ran by top notch staff and volunteers, when describing GRACE. That mirrors our experience when visiting their stores, attending their events or giving at the donation station. There is no better and we are lucky to have them in our area.
You can tell the people at GRACE really care about their community. It's not just talk, their actions speak volumes as well. Great organization with servant leaders that make a tremendous impact for the people they serve.
GRACE is a great organization. The support they give to the community of Grapevine and the help they offer to our neighbors in need is beyond amazing. They are a true wrap around service and one stop resource for a lot of families in town and I am proud to count myself as a volunteer for GRACE!!
GRACE provides so very many different services for a long list of needs. They give life changing help and options to people who might otherwise be optionless. The staff and volunteers care greatly about the individuals and families they serve, and work hard to keep their programs thriving. Whenever a need arises, they are there to give a helping hand and find solutions to help people back on their feet while learning self sufficiency. It is a great experience helping the GRACE team in service.
GRACE helps those that find themselves struggling to make ends meet. I personally know people that volunteered or donated to GRACE but then due to unforeseen circumstances ended up being a client. And the reverse is true as well. I love that their mission is to provide a "hand up" to those in need and strive to make people independent and self reliant again. From the medical clinic and food pantry to their annual Christmas Cottage as well as nutrition/cooking/language classes GRACE treats those seeking help with dignity and respect. Please support this critical non-profit through your time and donations.
Shopping at their stores is fun and they have a great selection! The people are always friendly and willing to help!

GRACE is the largest nonprofit agency in Northeast Tarrant County serving those who have a crisis and helping them become self-sustaining once again. It has the most areas serving human needs including financial, transitional housing, health clinic care, and special children programs in the summer and holidays. It's resale program is tremendous by taking donations, helping its clients first, and then selling the items in two stores where proceeds go back into GRACE programs to help clients, our neighbors in need! Thank you GRACE!
