Since its opening in 1994, the Grace House residential program has provided interim housing, emotional and spiritual support, and professional counseling to women who are exiting the Illinois prison system. Services are provided in a warm setting located on the Near West Side of Chicago. Residents are encouraged to set goals for the future and are taught how to make informed choices that will empower them to lead lives with dignity in their communities and their families.
WHERE WE HELP
Program Services staff members are professionally and personally equipped to serve the unique needs of women residents. Staff members receive ongoing professional development training and education from Adler Community Health Services, as well as from a host of guest instructors. Each Grace House resident is assigned to the Case Manager, who facilitates the resident’s access to programs and services. Resident Coordinators supervise the living environment around the clock.
From renewing the body and nurturing the mind to reviving the spirit, our programs and services guide men and women through the necessary steps to transform their lives for the better. Time spent in Saint Leonard’s programming and at Grace House often leads to healing, reconciliation with family, and renewed hope for the future. Once again, empowering women to lead whole and productive lives!
