Finding Grace Ministries

Finding Grace Ministries provides the residents with a multi-dimensional approach addressing life controlling issues. The program is formatted to last approximately six months; length of stay may vary due to an individual’s situation and progress. 

  • Life Skills Training- Individualized training in daily living skills including budgeting, cooking, shopping and more. These skills are taught in a class format and in a practical way, as each person is responsible for assigned chores in the home. 
  • Classroom Time- Our residents will have lessons in establishing boundaries, learning to forgive and move on from painful events in the past. These classes will include how to think in a positive manner and to learn to manage their anger.         
  • Nutrition Education- Having a proper diet is essential to healthy bodies and minds.
  • Financial Management- Our residents will learn what a healthy relationship with money is and instruction how to make their finances fit their budget.      
  • Personal and Spiritual Strengthening-We believe that freedom and deliverance from the hurts and the struggles that have kept the youth in bondage comes through a relationship with Jesus Christ. “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” Psalm 147:3
  • Outside Activities- It is important that the youth learn to live life free in their community. We will have some sporting events and encourage exercise.  
  • Vocational development- Once our residents have completed the first 12 months of our program we will help our survivors find their dreams and on to a road of success by acquiring all necessary documents, job coaching and enrollment in school.          
  • Community involvement- We ask our residents to become involved in our community through giving back through their own giftings and ideas.     
  • Substance abuse prevention- Our residents will be required to submit to random drug testing to keep everyone safe. We will also have a eighteen month aftercare program where our staff will meet with the survivors after graduation from our program to help keep them supported and set up with the proper resources needed.           
  • Parenting classes- We want families to stay together. We will use modeling behavior and instruction to help the survivors that have children of their own become the mothers they hope to be.
