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.
Although I am the CEO of a much larger non-profit in another state, I love supporting Grace Ministries on a regular basis! This grassroots organization takes its ministry to the streets & to those who need them most! They are helping women (probably some men also) find help, find God, and get off the streets! An amazing organization!
Hi! God is awesome! Grace Ministries of Helping Hands has most definitely made a major impact on my life. The women of this organization go far and beyond to help women who were once lost in the grip of addiction. What I truly admire the most is how they connect the women they help with Spiritual Advisors. Thanks Grace Ministries for all the support you give me! This organization is a blessing to many.
Grace Ministries is the best organization that helped me turn my life around and made me the person I am today. Years ago when I was all messed up, Grace Ministries stepped in and showed me more love than I could have imagined. They told me how much God loved me and that they will be by my side every step of the way. Till this day, their word remains the same. I've started at the bottom with them and I'm rising up to the top. Everytime I felt like giving up, Grace showed their helping hand. It wasn't easy giving up a lifestyle that I thought I could get use too, but Grace words always remind me of who I am now, then what I was back then. I love each and everyone of Grace Ministries Helping Hands. May God bless them to keep this organization going. Their word alone can change many lives and I'm a living witness.
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.

Grace ministry was sent truely from God into my life to rescue me. I was a prostitute and crack addict, homeless on Philips Highway. After they have met me, I am clean off drugs and a retail manager for Rethreaded. They even got me the connection to work at the nonprofit! They loved me through every relapse unconditionally and are still my best support. Kathleen and Jan are like Mamas to me. I love them and still to this day praise Jesus for sending them to me.
I had the pleasure of working with this ministry over the past couple of months and I have to say these people are the real deal. I've never met a more selfless group of people whose only purpose is to serve those who are trapped and hurting. It was truly amazing watching them work. They are incredibly compassionate and fearless.
This unique ministry has helped so many women in a variety of ways. Giving women back their dignity is providing them a better future. It also is a vehicle for women volunteering to help other women. Kathleen and Jan are dynamos.
This ministry is a selfless charity that truly preaches the Good News of Jesus Christ to the lost and forgotten.
This wonderful group reached out to my daughter when she was at her lowest point in a female prison. They wrote letters to her and helped her with a bus ticket upon her release and with housing/job assistance once she arrived into town. Today my daughter is a productive member of the community, working in a law office, playing sports such as softball and kickball in her spare time. Most importantly Grace Ministry helped my husband and I as much as our daughter by lifting her up and helping her to mature and become the beautiful person that we thought we had lost.
This Ministry truly cares about the whole individual and getting them to a point in life that assists them in learning what life is all. Aiding and guiding the individual in all facets of life and giving them a new beginning. Assisting them step by step, and helping them understand their worth in being the person they were born to be, all with a faith based ministry.
These folks are out there doing difficult direct work with our community's most forgotten members bringing hope!! The best part is- they really have a true love for others and for God.
This is an amazing ministry, helping those who are often forgotten. To be able to help these women become productive members of society is a challenge and yet Grace Ministries continues their mission and perseverance to give these women another chance at life.
I have been fortunate to attend a few fundraisers and meet the Directors and see their genuine works in action. I've met and looked into the eyes of some of the women changed by Grace! Also I've had them step in w Priority a loved one who needed Grace when others could not reach her. Such a wonderful ministry, calling and follow through....diligence and hearts overflowing!!!! They are in it for the long haul!
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.
Great group that works tirelessly to assist those with a variety of needs. Totally servant hearted and devoted to strengthening the communities around them.
They do the work that everyone talks about but never gets done. They do it with love, grace and warm hearts. I cannot say enough about their outreach to a community that needs them so very much. The resources that they share and the networks they have built are unparalleled throughout Jacksonville.
I believe deeply in the work Grace Ministry is doing in our city! I have seen the love, prayers & commitment Jan & Kathleen have for the women! Many of Kathleen's days are full until bedtime, since she works full time beside Grace Ministry! The human trafficking of the children & women of our city is astonishing! I challenge everyone to ride down Phillips Highway , the majority of folks you will see are possible clients....
I have seen first hand what this wonderful does on a daily basis. Ministry in the streets, jail, churches and even in their workplace. To see and hear the testimony of the men and women set free is beyond words. Kathleen and Jan are wonderful women of God who love unconditionally. Bless this Ministry!!
