Home of Grace-Like a Mother’s LoveDonate Now
Online or in person — you decide
As our communities begin to re-open, we understand that some people are looking forward to in-person activities, while others are still cautious. So, we are offering a hybrid approach this year:Join us on Zoom Friday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m for a presentation with speakers and videos from Home of Grace in Kenya. But we're also hoping that some of you will join together at one of our watch parties, where we can gather in smaller groups to share in the festivities. So is that semi-virtual? Virtually virtual? You decide what to call it! We have already confirmed watch parties in Burlington, Simcoe and the Hamilton area. But we would love it if a few more groups came together spontaneously.
Our online auction is back, with a curated collection of select items— a treasure for yourself or a great gift for that special someone. The auction opens early—May 1 at noon —and will close at the end of festivities on May 6 (approximately 8:30 p.m.).
This year's auction offerings will include ceramics, stained glass, knitting, art, and—of course—Melanie's world famous butter tarts!
Can't make it?
We'll miss you!! But we hope that you will still support the life-changing work being done at Home of Grace: the care and education of children in residential care, the lunch feeding program, and the community emergency fund.
In an effort to help our hosts make plans, we ask that you let us know you're coming. Please register today.
We provide for these needs through three programs:
- Residential care: Orphans and vulnerable children living at the Centre are given shelter, a loving and supportive environment, food, basic medical care and access to an education. Whenever possible, staff work to maintain contact with extended families to ease future re-integration into the community.
- Community Outreach: Families of identified children in the community receive at-home support, including tuition support and other occasional support to supplement food budgets.
- Lunch Feeding Program: Children in need identified by local schools and community leaders are fed lunch, to improve learning.
The majority of children arrive at Home of Grace weak and malnourished. We provide daily nutritious meals so that children can have the nutrients needed to be physically and mentally strong, concentrate in school, and have an opportunity at a better future.
We focus on increasing children’s access to quality education at Home of Grace and communities, by providing tuition support, school supplies, and other education fees. By giving the gift of education, you invest in a child’s future. Through education, these children can grow up to be productive, responsible members of their community.
These are challenging times for all of us. We have seen so many stresses added to our daily lives. But we ask you to please consider making a donation today as a way of offering hope to those who are often forgotten — orphaned and vulnerable children in such an impoverished part of the world.
