For 30 years, Grace House has been providing stable, Christian homes for Alabama girls in foster care on its residential campus in Fairfield, Alabama. Grace House’s comprehensive approach seeks to end the cycles of poverty and abuse that are so prevalent in the lives of the girls whom they serve. They aim to serve the girls by educating, equipping, and empowering them to become mature, godly women.
Grace House’s vision is that by equipping Alabama girls in foster care with the right educational, emotional, and spiritual tools, they will empower the girls toward transformational change in their own lives and in their families and communities.
The Youth Program at Grace House serves girls ages 6-18 who have been removed from their parental homes and placed in state custody. These girls are provided with 24/7 care. The goal is to create a family atmosphere for each girl – homecooked meals, daily devotions, and live-in house parents.
The Transitional Living Program (TLP) extends Grace House services to girls ages 16-21, who are beginning the process of aging out of the foster care system. Grace House provides a continuum of care: further guidance and structure for the girls before they assume complete independence. TLP girls work with a licensed social worker and life coach to develop measurable goals related to their education, career, and emotional well-being.
