Hi! Grace Ministry of Helping Hands is a first-class grassroots organization that does invaluable work in the Jacksonville community and surrounding areas. Kathleen and Jan's purity of heart and desire to do good bleeds through the culture of the organization and affects every aspect of its operations and dedicated volunteers, top-down. The work these two women do to intimately touch and transform the lives of addicts and victims of the sex trade cannot be replaced. I admire them and only hope this organization grows in size and magnitude. Jacksonville needs Grace Ministry of Helping Hands!
A unique mission to an underserved population. Kudos to Kathleen and Jan for seeing the need to be God's love in action to these women.
This is a wonderful nonprofit organization that helps many girls throughout Jacksonville ...I am so grateful to be a part help with this service. The women truly grow in the sunlight of the spirit . By becoming sober women and productive in society .
I support the mission of Grace Ministry if helping women escape human trafficking, get off the streets and actively recover from issues of drug and alcohol addiction. I have seen first hand and personally the results of their untiring grass roots work with these women and their willingness to go to any length to provide help - from picking women up off the street or exiting jail to let caring safe housing, free of drugs and alcohol, to providing clean clothes, Grace Ministry walks the walk and gets results. It is my honor to support them.
Grace Ministry of Helping Hands provides a unique and invaluable service to the city of Jacksonville. Their outreach to victims of human trafficking includes helping the women get into 12 step recovery programs along with sober life bing environments. To my knowledge this wonderful Ministry is unique in helping these trafficking victims achieve freedom from the horrible bondage of drugs and alcohol, a key component to their successful return to society. It has been my honor to know the women who are part of this wonderful Ministry.
The unconditional love , prayers & help that Jan, Kathleen & their volunteers offer to the sick & suffering is beyond amazing! They are truly Jesus's hands & feet!
I have watched Kathleen & Jan help countless women through Grace Ministry. Our broken need more help than our city can provide. Grace provides the love, support , mentoring that so many require to beat the lure of the demons of alcohol, drugs & prostitution!we as Christians are called to help & serve the broken , Grace fills the much needed shoes our city needs! Please vote , donate & let's unite to help our city!
Seeing is believing. I have personally witnessed the hard work of this non profit. Jan. Kathleen and their small but mighty force of volunteers have changed the lives of women who have been in bondage. The positive outcomes from the work of Grace Ministries is remarkable.
Best non profit in Jax. They "walk the talk". They work 24 by 7., have the most patience, compassion and love for humanity.

There is a multitude of things that I love about this ministry. The willingness they have to answer the call of action to any young woman in need of help is astounding! But it doesn't just stop at the housing for them.. It bleeds into all areas of that woman's life. They counsel these women, support them every step of the way, job training and treatment, helping them to achieve permanent stability. It's amazing and just a great resource to have in your pocket!
I know first hand as a member of a letter writing ministry that Grace Ministries of Helping Hands is in the battlefield fighting addictions and turning lives around. Nurturing women with unconditional care and love is the heart of this ministry and I commend Jan and Kathleen whose hearts are Christ centered and who never give up hope on possibilities.
The ladies of Grace are compassionate, and amazingly unselfish as they give endless hours to help women in need!

My name is Jessica Baker and my experience with grace ministry is totally awesome . They have really played a big part in my life of recovery. These women are extremely a blessing from God.
If they had not come into my life when they did I don't know where I would have been.
Thanking Jesus each and every day for Grace Ministry!

I am truly blessed to have worked and still work with these amazing ladies! They are so genuine, would give you the shirt off their back. They give people the chance they need when no one else would and guide them onto the better path they need. Im lucky I've got these ladies in my life I wouldn't be where I am today without them! ���
As the co-founder of Grace Ministry, it never ceases to amaze me how God continues to use us as His vessels to help these beautiftul women that we have been given the honor and privilege to help. Not only does He give us the grace, supernatural energy and provision to do what He has called us to do, but I personally get to be showered with His love, mercy and peace. There is nothing, absolutely nothing that compares to Him who has ALL POWER!!! He is a Good, Good Father.
As co-founder of Grace Ministry of Helping Hands, the call from God to fulfill this mission has completely changed my life and has definately given me purpose. In short, I was in the vicious cycle of addiction and alcoholism and through God's amazing grace, He set me free and has now called me to be His hands, feet and voice to carry the message of freedom and hope to other women who are in the dark. Once we begin establishing a relationship with a woman through street ministry, jail/rehab visitation or letter writing, we then walk the entire process with her if she makes a decision to surrender. We become her new family in Christ through recovery, transformation and God's amazing grace and love.
They have helped me start a new life. SOBER AND DOING Positive things today !! Thanks I love you. You believed in me when I could not see
That there was a different path
I am so grateful for Miss Kathleen and Grace Ministries I've been a prostitute and a drug addict since the age of 13 and if it wasn't for Miss Kathleen and Grace Ministries following me around and trying to reach out for me for the past two years I wouldn't be sitting here where I am today she suggested I go to recovery live in a halfway house and and do everything that was suggested to me I have my family back in my life if wonderful blessings in 47 days clean this is a wonderful wonderful program and I've never felt so much love I'm so grateful it's program saved my life
I have volunteered with Grace for over 6 years and have watched God perform miracles in the lives of countless women because of the work they do. The Founders, Kathleen and Jan are the real deal. They work tirelessly and without pay, to reach those that are hurting with no where else to go. Everything they do, day in and day out, makes a huge difference in the lives of not only the women they help, but the children and families that are also impacted. I have seen it first hand and it's amazing!
I can not say enough about this organization. I have been able to witness first hand the miracles that have happened in the lives of many women thanks to the tireless work of the co-founders. I have seen women who were living on the streets completely turn their lives around with Grace's help. Kathleen and Jan are outstanding examples of what it means to love unconditionally.. with no strings attached.
Grace ministry is exactly what it's called a ministry that extends the Grace of God to lost hurting women. I was one of those women and through them showing me this undeserving kindness, love and support I found self worth and most importantly a relationship with God.. My life is so much different today (for the better) and I thank God and Grace Ministry for that
I was in jail so worried I would be back on the streets again homeless when I got put. They picked me up from jail let me go to church with them and then took me to a safe structured environment where they paid my rent for 3 months.. I'm just one of the very many lost girls they do this for !!! True women of God who devote there entire lives to helping others.
I have not been a "beneficiary" of this amazing organization but I know the work they are doing. I've donated in the past and I know Kathleen. She has worked tirelessly and given her ALL to make the ministry what it has become. Regardless of whether I was a beneficiary of the services and/or charity, we should all be thankful this organization is here, in our community. Bless you all and a special
Grace Ministries has restored hope to many men and women who have found themselves lost to addictions and have therefore resorted to prostitution and crime to make it from one day to the next. The mentors of Grace have helped these ladies and gentlemen seek new beginnings, to find their way back into lives of self esteem by showing them LOVE and offering guidance in life skills they had forgotten or never had the opportunity to learn.
Grace works with people most of us do not want to be around. Somehow God has given the Grace ministers compassion and Love for these seemingly not so easy to love people.
Importantly, all the work is volunteer. No one is paid. No one does this for the money.
