The Power in Writing
With a new year upon us, we are ready to take 2020 by the horns and help even more women. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our faithful donors for their generous donations. THANK YOU!
We continue sharing the experiences of our amazing volunteers. Did you know we have a letter writing committee? Learn more about Stevie, who spearheaded writing letters to women in jail to provide hope and lend a helping hand.

“My relationship with Grace Ministry of Helping Hands began with my friendship with Jan Miller. We were walking partners and neighbors for many years in the St Nicholas neighborhood in Jacksonville. Jan was a devoted Christian woman who used her faith to represent her neighborhood and church in many ways and always did it with a humble spirit. I admired that about her and hoped it would rub off on me by being in her company.
When Jan met Kathleen, Grace Ministry was started for women who were troubled and in situations from making poor choices for themselves. They had a need for a “helping hand”. Thus, Grace Ministry of Helping Hands was established. I volunteered to host a monthly letter writing committee meeting in my home and I knew God would provide the ones who would volunteer. An initial welcoming letter along with the organization guidelines was written for each woman who had been arrested for prostitution and drug use with words of encouragement and hope through Jesus.
I have been grateful to be part of this ministry and knowing that but for the grace of God one of these women could be me”.
