With all the pomp and circumstance of a graduation, three women are completing the GRACE Transitional Housing program, and will celebrate their achievement on Thursday, March 22 at Stewart Hall in The REC Grapevine, 1175 Municipal Way.
Although the three graduates have reached life-changing goals already, the commencement will mark the conclusion of their two-year program with GRACE.
“Each participant has accomplished long and short term goals that lead them to independent and successful lives,” said Shonda Schaefer, GRACE Executive Director. “It is a true celebration, but also a chance to say our ‘congratulations’ and ‘goodbyes’ as well.”
The counseling-focused program focuses on improving life skills, education, employment and physical, emotional and spiritual health. Strong bonds grow among the participants, many who have created lifelong friends through the experience.
It is also natural that the same type of bond grows between the program participants and the staff that counsel and oversee their progress.
“We are fortunate to know these courageous people,” said Jamé Scott, GRACE Transitional Housing Manager. “We understand where they’ve come from, and where they are headed. We witness their struggles every day, and we share in their joy when they reach their goals.”
The event also celebrates the vision and value of the GRACE Transitional Housing program. For more information, email Jamé Scott or call 817-305-4640.
