I first started donating to Grace Campus (Paul's Project) back when it was called "Tent City". The transformation to Grace Campus has been amazing. I have seen firsthand, the positive changes in peoples' lives and I continue to be impressed with the services that are provided to the people who reside there until they're able to get back on their feet. The transition from tents to "little houses" has been especially a "God Send". Having a roof over their heads gives the residents a much needed boost in confidence and happiness. Many thanks to the folks who provide for the needs of the residents of Grace Campus.
Grace Campus tirelessly and faithfully serves the homeless population of Lubbock in a professional and relational manner that truly meets the needs of the population.
Grace campus is terrific. Management truly cares about their people. Thankful for people like Jerri Ann. Favorite place to volunteer!!
Grace Campus is incredible. I have never seen such a devoted, welcoming, and caring group of people like the staff here. Every interaction I have had with Grace Campus has been impactful and positive, and each resident I met has been inspiring and friendly. It is a great and organized system which helps all involved.
Grace Campus is a loving and open space for people looking for temporary shelter, but most importantly, hope.
Their tiny houses give their residents dignity and a means of moving toward an independent life outside of the homeless shelter communities. We are so grateful this resource exists in our city and are proud to be regular donors.
This is a great transitional housing place. the directors, staff and volunteers do their best to help those in need of temporary housing, clothing and food. They serve more of a population of those in need than they have funding for at times. They help with medical assistance and resources for jobs as a part of the transition process for those they assist. Amazing blessing to some many in great need!
I have volunteered with this non-profit for a few years now and it hands down has been one of the most impactful experiences I have ever had. Paul’s Project is genuine about helping those who need it and on loving those who may seem ‘unloveable’. They always want the best for their people and always are gracious for the volunteers!
A lot of people are helped through very caring and dedicated individuals with limited access to much needed resources or funding.
Everyone is treated with dignity and compassion and each person receives a personalized accountability plan and services.
Basic human needs are met so that the individual can focus on other areas that need assistance and attention while striving to gain sufficient housing.
Each individual matters and hope is restored.
I had given up hope. But the ppl at Paul's Project refused to give up on me. They coached me out of addiction,helped me find employment & gave me the hope I lost somewhere along the way.
I'm employed full time now,closer to God & myself....and strangely know I'm better off for the homeless experience.
Thanks for the guidance Paul's Project....Please never stop being the beacon that you are.
Pauls Project (Grace Campus), provides an opportunity for people to transition from homelessness to independence and sustainability. The directors, Jerri Ann and Chris are two self-less people who put others ahead of themselves. They provide a safe environment with food, sanitation, shelter and clothing where people who do not have any support can live and work towards autonomy and giving back to the community. We have an opportunity to rally people in our place of work and education at Texas Tech University and the Honors College to provide assistance in many ways. The individuals who live at Grace are most gracious are willing to help while we work in different ways at the campus through our staff, faculty and students. Jerri Ann and Chris are an example to us all. And to quote Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, “The most satisfying thing in life is to have been able to give a large part of one’s self to others”.
Larry and I enjoy volunteering to provide a meal to Grace Campus a minimum of once a month. We provide a meal once a month to celebrate everyone’s birthday during that month. We love Chris and Jerri Ann as well as Mary and Robert. Please consider providing a meal or help out by providing supplies needed.
When we came to Grace Campus my husband and I were on the street. He has alot of health problems. He had been needing a hip replacement. We had been sleeping on the ground at a little pond behind the stripes on 50th and Ave A. The day before we came here, it rained that night and we had no blanket or anything. We had the clothes on our back and that was it. I had tried to call several times and never got an answer. So i told my husband that we would just come over here. We used the last of our money to ride the bus here. When we got here the staff was great and helped us fill out the application and we were excepted on the spot. I prayed all the way over here that we would be able to get in and God answered my prayers. I believe in my heart that God sent us here. We were able to get clothes, blankets, everything that we needed. I have been able to get the health care that I have needed for years going through the programs that are available here. Without Grace Campus I dont know where my husband and I would be! The directors are amazing people, the do everything that they can to help the homeless people in our community. Grace Campus is a Blessing to our community, it not only help the homeless get off the street it helps them in so many other ways. My husband and I have been so blessed by being at grace campus. The Lubbock community is also a blessing to Grace Campus, If they didnt donate the things they do then Grace Campus would not be able to run. They have blessed us in so many ways. My husband is now about to have the total hip replacement that he has so desprately needed, We wouldnt be where we are today without the help of Grace Campus! So many homeless people have been helped to find work and transition out to their own homes. 70+ just this year alone. 78 last year! to me that is Amazing!
I first of want to thank the people that run Grace Campus. If there wasnt people like them I wouldnt be where I am today. This place has given me the chance to get back on my feet. A safe place to lay your head down, food in your stomach and clothes on your back. Since I have been here I have gotten a steady job, starting to save money for my own place. Before I got here I was in and out of jail. And this time I promised myself I would change my life and with this place it has giving me that chance to start over. Now I have my daughter back I in my life in the next couple of months I will have my own place. And I have been drug free in December will be a year. Someday I hope to be able give back to the a place like Grace Campus because this first time in my life I know I will not fail in life and be a postive role model in society today. When people give to places like this we have food to eat and clothes on our back. And they help with resources with medicine and counseling for whether you have mental or emotional needs. People even come out here and get us to work. If your willing to put the effort forward to make that change and work steps to make a positive change in your life. Grace Campus is that chance for change. I thank God and this wonderful people for believing in me when a year ago. I wanted to give up on life. Now I am starting a new one.
