How Our Journey Began

Gracewood’s residential program is modeled after the Family Care program at its sister agency, Texas Baptist Children’s Home. After land was donated and buildings were built Gracewood officially opened in March 2001, serving 5 single mothers and their children. In the years that followed, the need for these specialized services has become more apparent and we’ve continued to grow to meet that need. Current facilities can serve up to 21 families in residence and Gracewood has an ongoing wait list of single mothers who are waiting to get into the program.
