Our vision is to help those that have been marginalised in our society get a second chance. To help our residents integrate back into our community by teaching them life-skills and to provide them with the basic needs like housing, food, clothing and preparation for employment. Grace Foundation is strategically situated to be able to do this work in our community. We are based in Whanganui, in our city’s most disadvantaged communities. Our team is experienced, passionate and go above and beyond to do all they can to help the people in our care. We focus on creating a positive environment for our residents and a supportive wrap around service to foster a real and meaningful change in their lives. Grace Foundation service is offered to individuals under the Corrections system care including those on remand, EM bail, home detention, under Probation supervision, community sentenced and those on parole. Grace Foundation currently operates 4 houses;, 3 Men’s and 1 Woman & children’s home that is supported by a dedicated team of 4 full-time staff. We currently have 12 Men and 1 Woman with her 7 children residing in the homes. Grace Foundation conducts a weekly program called “Solutions” that focuses on influencing change of attitudes and behaviour of our residents, particularly in relation with drugs and alcohol, positive goal setting & planning and relationship reconciliation and restoration.
