The 2018 Volunteer of the Year is Jewels of Grace (affectionately known as The Acorn Ladies).
What started out three years ago as a project to make handmade acorn necklaces that are beautiful and unique for our clients after they complete our program, has grown into something even bigger. In 2017, Jewels of Grace provided funding and computers to grow our GED program to make it possible for more clients to get their GED while at The Healing Place. These wonderful ladies also provide tutoring, study books, and supplies for our clients.
Jewels of Grace also helps to provide TARC passes so that our clients can get to 12 Step meetings and other places they need to go.
Within every acorn is the hope of a mighty oak tree. With the help of these amazing women, our clients develop just the same.
Congratulations Jewels of Grace!
