Purpose:

GraceSon Housing Foundations provides housing to teen moms and their children that extends God's love and reframes their vision of home. GraceSon's family-style home and Hope Program offers holistic care, education support, life skill coaching, mentoring, access to resources, and more.

GraceSon Housing Foundation was born out of Young Lives, an organization that mentors teen mothers in our community. While serving with Young Lives of Spokane, a group of local women recognized that many of the teenage girls who attend club are either homeless or facing unsafe living conditions. Provision and access to safe housing became a serious need as their work with young moms grew. Late in 2012, a generous community member donated a home for a new non-profit that would provide a home and holistic care for teenage mothers when none previously existed. GraceSon opened the doors of its home in November 2014.
