In the middle of its first year of operating, Grace House and its residents are taking new steps. The last three months have brought a new school year and its first formal school relationships for its first and future residents. For one girl who transferred from Sarah’s house to Grace House in February, she has taken a huge step and rejoined the formal classroom setting at a nearby school. She is engaging with new peers and making new friends. Though most classes are currently held online due to COVID-19 precautions, she has been able to attend meet-ups outside with small study groups, learning together and making life-giving connections, a huge step as she begins to look forward to future reintegration back to stronger new life and community.
Also, this coming weekend Grace House residents will have a ceremony that celebrates the completion of a 10-week curriculum together that teaches and inspires these truths: that each girl has incredible worth, that they possess great strength, and that they have a real purpose. As survivors learn and engage these foundational values, it births new hope and new vision as they continue to heal, rebuild, and to see new possibilities for their future.
We are so grateful and humbled by your partnership with Compassion First. It makes new things possible for every girl of Grace House and it is a huge joy for us to walk with them in their journey! Thank you!
