Thanks to our 2015 #fundGRACE campaign, we were able to raise $3,688 for job training and case management! Sign up for our newsletter here to follow our progress as we work hard to put others back to work!
This event requires that you NOT hire a babysitter, buy a new outfit, rent a tuxedo, mingle and dance. Instead, we invite you to kick back, relax, and — here’s the best part — stay home!
