GLR is my opportunity to love God and love People the way that Jesus loves me!  I get the opportunity to meet people where they are and walk alongside them as they work towards holistic stability for their family.  One of my favorite quotes is “Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”  GLR gives me the opportunity to dance in God’s grace and love while living through the storms of life.

Serving on the Board with Grace Like Rain inspires me to transform my faith daily into action. James 1:27 calls us to: “…..look after orphans and widows in their distress….”.  God has blessed my family and community so richly that I cannot turn a blind eye those in their greatest hour of need. 1 John 3:17 presents the question, “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth”. The GLR staff and volunteers are tremendous and deserving of my support. I am humbled often through their tireless work and efforts and touched by the lives they help to transform.

Having pastored churches throughout our 29 years of marriage, we constantly run into poverty and homelessness. We make it a goal to help. We are also monthly donors to Grace Like Rain because they aren’t just helping, they actually solve the issue for these families in crisis. GLR gets them off the streets and breaks the cycle of poverty in their lives. And this work effects generations.

Cedric Chambers – Director

I have a passion for people driven by my desire to see all men and women become whole.

Elissa Polley – Director

GLR works to restore hope and healing one life and one family at a time.  GLR sees this work as restorative not only to the individual, but to the community as a whole.  Seeing people beyond their circumstances is what makes GLR so special!
