The Grace House of Itasca County, MN (www.gracehousemn.org) serves the needs of our homeless individuals and families.  On any given day we may find ourselves or someone we love in a homeless situation.  The Grace House is an organization where we can refer others or seek support for ourselves and receive that help.  The Grace House not only provides a safe place to rest but they also offer additional support services to assist the person or family for stability.  Covid-19 has impacted the housing situation of many and it is estimated to increase the number of homeless (Economic Roundtable | Locked Out – economicrt.org). As a way to give back, support our community members, and address the needs of our vulnerable homeless, please consider making a monetary or needed item donation to the Grace House.
