What is Extending Grace?

Extending Grace is a ministry of Grace Community Church that provides clothing and supplies to assist foster families who are receiving a new placement. We collect, organize and provide clothes, infant supplies, and other items to help foster parents.

Why does Grace partner with Foster Families?

We believe in the real expressions of love that Jesus showed to children and we wanted to make it more feasible for families in our community to foster children. Thus, we provide a one-two week supply of clothes plus any baby items needed. Extending Grace is open to all foster families in the community regardless of church affiliation. We want to do what we can to help with the chaos of the first days of a new placement and we thank you for welcoming children into your homes.
