There is need in williamson county
Seasonal expenses such as holidays, back-to-school, extreme weather changes and tax time can overextend a family’s financial resources. GraceWorks offers all the services below.
During the Christmas season we provide Williamson County Neighbors with multiple blessings.
Christmas Food Boxes works with local churches and community partners to provide groceries delivered to the Neighbor’s home.
The Manger is our annual Christmas shopping program. With the generosity of our local community donating new items, and with the help from teams of volunteers, we create a store-like experience for these families to “shop” for Christmas presents for their children.
Registration for these services start in November.
In our commitment to help families become more financially stable and increase their assets, GraceWorks refers Neighbors to a FREE Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, managed by United Way of Greater Nashville. Click HERE to access the FREE VITA program.
Our Little Angels program is for Williamson County Neighbors and recognizes that each child is a gift and deserves the best start to life. Our goal is to provide a car seat, pack and play and other necessities for our little neighbors within their first year.
GraceWorks can provide an air conditioner/heater for neighbors in need. Williamson County Neighbors requesting air conditioners must present a doctor’s letter recommending this person has a medical need for the air conditioner. Requests for heaters do not require a doctor’s note. Only one air conditioner, fan, or heater may be given in three years, with a lifetime limit of two units.
Serving since 1998 in middle Tennessee, GraceWorks has built up a robust referral network. When GraceWorks is unable to aid, we can refer neighbors to a variety of partnering non-profits and government agencies that are better equipped to serve them.
Having the needed, and required, school supplies can make the difference between success and failure in school. GraceWorks, along with United Way, area churches, businesses and agencies work together to distribute backpacks and school supplies to county students each year.
GraceWorks can provide a thrift store clothing voucher so that a Neighbor may receive clothing purchased through the GraceWorks Thrift Store free of charge. A clothing voucher is limited to as needed.
Vouchers for thrift store furniture and household items are given to neighbors experiencing situational hardship. For example, a neighbor transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing or a family member sleeping on the floor.
GraceWorks can offer Williamson County Neighbors with the opportunity of one-on-one professional counseling to Neighbors in need. Through our partnership with the Refuge Center, a neighbor will receive four sessions with a counselor. GraceWorks contributes $25 per session, with a maximum of four sessions, and neighbors contribute $5 towards the cost of each session.
