As a teacher at a Title I school in Texas, I saw the devastation in many of my students’ lives as their families struggled. Whether it meant not having a consistent place to call home or being separated from their loved ones, it always meant hardship. How can you function in school or work, when you’re worried about your basic needs being met? My family decided to partner with Grace Like Rain because they are committed to being a loving place where families in need can receive the assistance they need. Whether it’s finding affordable housing or helping with rent, providing childcare so parents can get to work, transportation assistance so kids can go to school and parents can go to work, budgeting assistance - Grace Like Rain provides it. They listen to the needs and invite the body of Christ to come along and help support the families they serve. We are committed to supporting Grace Like Rain through volunteering our time and being a monthly donor so that Grace Like Rain can continue to spread the love of Jesus in the community. “We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19 The Martin Family - Garrett, Elizabeth, Rylan, & Lillian
