Our Life Skills courses offer families and children the opportunity to learn, grow, and advance in ways that may not have been available to them through traditional educational institutions. These courses are also an important source of community for our families to share and collaborate. To sign up as a hospitality or childcare volunteer for our Life Skills Courses, go here.

The Parenting Group

In The Parenting Group, we will create a community of support and learning. We will be introduced to what it truly means to be an active parent. Throughout our course we will discuss: how to achieve cooperation and communication, how to teach responsibility, how to implement effective boundaries and appropriate discipline, how to build courage and self esteem in ourselves and in our children, and when and how to redirect misbehavior. We will also discuss tactics for assisting children in success at school and communicating the risks of substance abuse and violence.

Faith and Finances

Our Faith & Finances 8 week course teaches parents the guidelines to financial literacy and savings. We focus on 4 core areas:

  1. Laying the foundation for Financial Literacy
  2. Setting Goals and Budget Building
  3. Integrating Sound Practices into Budgeting
  4. Protecting Assets and Considering Net Worth

College Clinic

This clinic connects our Grace Like Rain clients with local universities and informational resources on how to begin or resume their higher education journey. Two parents began their university career in 2020 after attending our Grace Like Rain college clinic and getting connected with local universities and opportunities!

In addition to longer term and recurring courses, Grace Like Rain offers a variety of workshops and classes to our families as we recognize needs arising. Our case managers work to listen to client feedback and address client needs to provide insight into courses or resources that may be beneficial to our families.
