God is Love

February is the month of LOVE!

John 13:34 says “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”
One way to love on our families at Grace Place is to donate to our household items needed. Currently, there are only a few things that we are running low on. Those are listed below.

Another great way to love our families is to provide a hot meal on their program nights. The meal train to sign up can be found at https://mealtrain.com/yloyde

We also have two Grace Place baby boys coming next month!  We are so excited to love on these mamas as they welcome those little bundles into the GP Family.  Please check out our Facebook page for the links to the registries if you would like to help shower them with baby needs.


We are so grateful for the love you continuously show Grace Place. We pray that you can feel the love of Jesus this month and always. Thank you so much for your support!!


Current Needs:
Diapers size 6
Pull-ups size 4T

New Year, New Beginnings!

Happy New Year!! As we begin 2022, we are so thankful for all of our donors who helped stock our household and hygiene supplies in December.  There was such an outpouring of love and support, and we are grateful for those who not only donated but also prayed for us and with us at Grace Place.  As our moms are working to grow in many aspects of their lives, you are working to support them and that brings an amazing feeling of hope.

Another way you can help serve the families at Grace Place is to provide a hot and ready meal for them on a Monday or Thursday night.  On those nights, our families have programming they attend, and having a hot meal ready for them after work and school is so helpful in getting them fed and ready to experience all God has for them in their programs.  If you would like to contribute in this way, please go to our Meal Train site and sign up.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 615-881-3976 or email Lisa Jo at lisaa.graceplace@gmail.com.

For now, our needed items are listed here.  If you are able to donate, please contact our office to set up a delivery time.  Again, we are so thankful for all that you do to support Grace Place!

Like Family

When you donate household consumables to Grace Place, you’re not only meeting practical, physical needs, you’re also making our struggling, single mamas feel like family. Here is part of what a couple of graduates said about their experiences at Grace Place . . .

“All I had to do was mention a need, and it would be in my room when I got home from work!”

“Oh, my goodness! The love and support that the moms received! . . . The extra steps they took to make me feel like I had a family that loved and cared about me. . . . That was a daily thing I felt while at GP.”

We are grateful beyond words for your gifts that cause our mamas “to feel loved and cared for.” Below is a list of the items our families currently need, the most urgent in red.  We accept donations between 10 and 12 on Mondays and Wednesdays by appointment. Please call 615-881-3976 to schedule a donation drop-off. Or if you prefer, shop our Amazon Wish List and your purchase will be shipped directly to us. Thank you so much!
