Grace Place recently did their very first room-naming in honor of Ashley Smartt of Smartt Steps Dance Studio in Hendersonville, TN. The Smartt family supports Grace Place in so many ways, and we were honored to be a part of this special night.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to update any of our followers on this blog. Grace Place officially began taking families the 3rd week of July, so we’ve been very busy developing routine and structure for daily operations in the ministry. We can’t thank this community enough for the onslaught of support whether through financial contributions, tangible donations, or the willingness to jump in and help by volunteering. This ministry wouldn’t be here if not for you! Today alone, we’ve received many phone calls and affirmation from the community with the release of this article in the Tennessean. It gives a small glimpse of the incredible work God has been doing in the hearts of the people who began this journey a little over two years ago.
Our families at GP are inspiring! Every day we get to see God work in them and we get to witness how crazy the Lord is about every woman and child in this place!
“Lord my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.”

The journey of establishing Grace Place Ministry, Inc. began two years ago when two people had a conversation about what could be done to meet a growing need in our community; a need that required long-term assistance with shelter and various forms of training for single mothers and their children who are experiencing homelessness.
Right now, we are in the final stages of remodeling, and we wanted to share some of these moments with all of you!
