ABOUT GRACE HOUSE
The mission of Saving Grace Ministries of Rochester, Inc, is to provide a smooth transition to community life for men recently released from a correctional facility by providing a highly structured program. SGMR operates the "Grace House" Transitional Residence Program, which provides a residence of safety and structure for individuals reentering society after a period of incarceration, equipping them with the life skills necessary to successfully complete parole.
The program provides food, clothing, shelter, housing location assistance, case management, referral to substance abuse, mental health, anger management and domestic violence treatment as well as linkages with medical treatment and coordination of services with other community service providers. By providing services that decrease the likelihood of future criminal behavior and the onset of homelessness, the program continues to be proactive in preventing unwed pregnancy, homelessness and criminal behavior after completion of the program.
Grace House is looking for skilled and unskilled volunteers to partner with them and their clients in building maintenance and general housekeeping activities. Volunteers are also able to lead Bible studies with program participants or teach life-skills classes.
During the Christmas season, Grace House accepts donations of presents pre the request of the or clients so that they can provide gifts for their children at home.
