At Gracewood, each family’s immediate needs are met by providing safety, clothing, food, water, and electricity. Other residential services include mentoring, educational support, parenting and life skills training, financial planning, and referral to community resources. These vital services deliver permanent solutions from poverty and the threat of homelessness. They help remove barriers to success such as emotional and family instability, lack of education and training, and inadequate childcare.
Individual and Family Counseling
The Hope for Families team provides hope and healing to hundreds of individuals each year through residential and nonresidential counseling services. Gracewood counselors implement a trauma-informed approach to client care using a model called Trust-Based Relational Intervention
®. All counseling and parenting training is offered at no cost to the clients in order to meet the pressing needs of underserved children and families in the greater Houston area.
When a family completes the residential program at Gracewood, they have achieved independence and have learned to maintain a healthy family dynamic. They move into their own place, but not without the ongoing support of Gracewood staff and resources.
