DeSoto Grace is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to assist families in DeSoto County to find resources and opportunities that improve their economic, educational and relational situations. By building relationships within the community, DeSoto Grace connects people, programs and services. DeSoto Grace offers a consistent and reliable hand up, not just a hand out by coordinating the basic needs of families with businesses, other non-profits and individuals.
DeSoto Grace focuses on four key elements that embody everything we are and do:
Meeting needs through our volunteer network.
Supplement the education of those who need assistance.
Instill the value of discipline and hard work.
Providing resources and opportunities.
Our Volunteers are Champions
Real Impact Happens in the Midst of Relationships
At DeSoto Grace we believe that everyone deserves a Champion— someone who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.
Money is not always the answer to the deepest needs of people. At DeSoto Grace we use money as a tool to build innovative programs and gather resources for families. These programs and resources are designed to build trust and relationships. By building those two things, the heart of the problem for each person can be addressed. To show someone they are important, worthy and valuable is a major step to building their self-confidence. It’s amazing how far a struggling person will go when someone believes in them.
