the why

Grace for Generations

The vision for Grace Place is to establish a community center that serves and embraces all ages providing a safe place where kids can get tutoring, mentoring, sports clinics, and open gyms. Teens can find a safe place to connect and share interests. Seniors can find a place of belonging with fun activities and social engagement, and families can come together for various classes and activities.

This will be a place where everyone is welcome, everyone can belong, and everyone can be a part of a safe environment where people’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical lives will thrive. Whatever reason they choose to come, we believe they will experience the love and the goodness of God in this place!

Lives will be changed, hope restored, God glorified on every square foot of the property.

The plan

building a place of grace, hope, & community

Grace Place has already purchased 7.5 beautiful acres in Anna, TX, nestled between the main thoroughfares of Hwy 75 and Hwy 5. This location offers central access for the families of surrounding communities and (for now!) has room to expand as the need for additional services grows.

the basics

common questions

Our master plan provides outdoor space for a football/soccer field, covered pavilion, fishing dock, & playground. The indoor facilities are designed for 2 basketball/volleyball courts, stage, kitchen for our food pantry, and multiple classrooms.

Because Grace Place is a non-profit organization relying on community support, a scheduled opening date relies on the generosity of the community to meet construction needs. Our plans are split into multiple phases to provide services as quickly as possible.

Our current goal is to open Phase 1 by Fall of 2025. See how you can get involved to help turn blueprints into reality!

The Grace Place Community Center is designed to be used by everyone in the community. Regardless of background or situation, everyone needs a place to feel welcomed, safe, and nurtured in their physical, spiritual, and mental health.

" This community center is going to offer so much for our students which some simply don't have access to now. I'm excited to see how the kids are going to grow and excel into their next, as well as the adults who are going to be offering their time and talents! "
