Serenity8 was established to provide a long-term supportive environment for youth who are 21 years of age and younger, and for their children, who are in need of a loving home. These girls live under the loving supervision of a highly trained adult staff. We desire to prevent homelessness and to maintain physical unification of families for those who cannot remain in their homes of origin due to family disruption caused by abuse, neglect, abandonment, or who have not adjusted to foster care.

Grow In Grace Outreach Services, Inc. provides the Transitional Living Program (TLP) and the Independent Living Program (ILP). TLP is designed to aid youth who are 21 years of age and younger, and those who have aged out of the state foster care system, and ready to enter a phase of care that will eventually transition them to independent living. ILP is intended for single women, under the age of 21, and their children who are in need of supportive housing assistance. We provide a sense of stability and help them to establish permanence in their lives.
