Grace Centers of Hope was established in 1942. It has since grown and evolved into the largest and oldest faith-based outreach to homeless and disadvantaged individuals and families. Grace Centers of Hope(GCH) provides a full recovery and rehabilitation campus for homeless men,women and children who have been abused or addicted to drugs and/or alcohol.
Change begins when we, as a community, extend helping hands. We do not believe homelessness and substance abuse addictions can be solved simply by throwing dollars at the problem. We believe that change occurs from the inside out. Consequently our faith-based organization is dedicated to recovery through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and supported through our challenging life skills programs.
Our Mission Statement
Grace Centers of Hope is a non-profit Christian organization committed to positively changing the lives of the homeless, addicted and unwanted through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, personal accountability, life skills education and work-related programs. The foundation of change is the local church which encourages residents to become strong in faith and independence while it lovingly promotes a sense of belonging within a community that truly can be called “home”.
We envision Grace Centers of Hope as a committed community of believers, reaching out to those individuals whose lives have been damaged by addictions and self-destructive behavior. Our recovery programs will lead these individuals to reconciliation and restoration to God, their families, their community and to themselves. Grace Centers of Hope will teach, train and disciple our residents. Through love and accountability, Grace Centers of Hope will help residents to refocus their lives as productive members of society. By introducing our residents to the eternal claims of the Gospel, we envision change from the inside out. Through a self-contained community including residential dorms, single family homes and well-run Grace Centers of Hope-owned business, all centered on Grace Gospel Fellowship Church, we hope to provide hope, jobs and stability for many years to come for each of our residents.
