Our Mission is to move adults and families who can't yet afford stable housing into self-sufficiency by utilizing transitional housing, high accountability, education, and goal setting led by a family-like, faith-based team of staff and volunteers.
In 2019, volunteer service coordinators at SunRise Church began to walk alongside the hurting and unsheltered individuals and families. They quickly discovered that the greatest need for the people they served was transitional housing. There were no organizations in St. Charles County dedicated solely to transitional housing for adults and families over 21 years of age . In addition, the waiting list for section 8 was months, even years.
The Grace Period was born out of this gap and provides expense-free, transitional living and case management for these hurting people so that each family will be able to afford the life they are searching for.
The vision of The Grace Period is to work closely with families on development goals and successfully move them from being unsheltered into stable, permanent, safe, and affordable housing. Permanent housing changes the trajectory of their lives and the lives of their children.
