GRACE is a one-stop homeless resource center serving Gainesville and Alachua County. We provide helpful and effective services for anyone experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Our services include safe emergency shelter, permanent housing, showers, hot meals, storage, case management, job training, and providing space to our partners to provide health care and other services. By taking care of basic necessities day to day, GRACE empowers individuals to reclaim control over their lives and recover from unfortunate circumstances.
In 2005, the City of Gainesville created a Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness, and GRACE is the cornerstone of that plan. Our Rapid Rehousing programs push that agenda forward with unwavering compassion and commitment. In just a few years, we've reduced chronic homelessness in Gainesville by 38%. There's no question that GRACE works, and we're just getting started.
We treat our guests with dignity and respect while taking immediate action to serve their needs and support their life goals. You can volunteer with GRACE Marketplace to serve a meal, share a smile, and make a positive impact in someone’s life.
