Grace Place organized in 2011 after being in faith-based dorms in the Texas prison systems since 2004.
Our problem was we had no place to take our people once they came out of those faith-based dorms. We had to transition them into places with people that we didn’t know well and they didn’t know at all.
Starting Grace Place allowed a continuity of care that started in the prison system and continued upon a person release.

Grace Place Properties is a combination of two apartment complexes as well as a third property that is not connected to the apartment complexes.
The second apartment complex allows them to experience more of a real-world experience. While they still have the connection to the community, they have more freedom, more opportunity, and they do it in a context that allows that to happen for them and so as they live… as they move along in the process… they move from one side to the other. They experience a more real-world situation at the same time community is still a part of their life.
