Gracious Homes, Inc. provides a comprehensive array of activities to strengthen and support the emotional, physical and social needs of each woman who enters into our facility.
Horticulture Therapy is at the core of the support services that we provide for our program participants. Women are educated and encouraged of the benefits of horticultural therapy by creating healing gardens that are maintained by the residents while residing in the home.
Health and wellness activities such as meditation breaks, fitness challenges, yoga, and individualize health plans are additional opportunities offered to assist participants with strategies that will motivate them to take control of their health.
Weekly group therapy sessions that involve role playing allows participants to develop self awareness and socialization skills. By listening to others with similar issues participants learn how to express their issues and accept criticism from others while interacting and developing communication skills that lead to healthy relationships.
*All services on or offsite are required.

Our goal is to empower women who are willing to fight the pervasive influence of poverty, abuse and self-defeating behaviors associated with homelessness . We realize each step is extremely rigorous, but those who see it through end up with a greater sense of self worthiness and the necessary tools that will enable them to promote a life time of growth-change-and stability.
