House of Grace seeks donations and volunteers

A proposed transitional housing facility has sent out the call for donations.

The House of Grace, Hope and Mercy needs $100,000 to help pay off the 16-bed facility, which will be located at 436 Chestnut Street.

The House of Grace’s board of directors is not just looking for money, but for everything from hygiene products to weed eaters to playpens and high chairs.

“We’ll take anything donation-wise,” said Kassie Barker, president of the board of directors.

The board would like to open the House of Grace by the end of March, but the facility will open only “when our ducks are in a row,” Barker said.

The House of Grace is a family transitional housing mission, open to individuals and families seeking shelter, comfort and stability without judgment or condemnation.

The ultimate goal is to end homelessness in Mercer County by helping people get back on their feet “physically, emotionally and spiritually,” Barker said.
