Agency Mission Statement: To provide a smooth transition to community life for men recently released from a correctional facility, who have demonstrated a consistent commitment to change, by providing a highly structured program.
2000+ individuals are released to Parole supervision in Erie County each year. More than 1 in 4 will come through the “Grace House” program.
Lives are touched. Families are changed.
A community is transformed.
From its beginnings as a single 5-bed residence in 2001 to the current 11 facility, 90-bed program, the “Grace House” Transitional Residence Program has become a statewide model reentry program, serving over 650 clients per year in Buffalo, over 300 per year in Rochester, and with an additional location in Elmira scheduled to open this year.
|Guided by Rev. Terry King, his wife Sheryl, a Board of Directors and growing staff, Grace House went from a single house and vision to 11 properties, helping over 650 men and women make transition in 2013 alone. In a population that would ordinarily return to incarceration 70% of the time, 70-80% of “Grace House” clients successfully complete the program and are able to move into independent housing.
