WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

GRACE PLACE

Grace Place is a pioneer in holistic family education in Collier County. We utilize a multigenerational solution to mitigate and address the multigenerational problem of the cycle of poverty. Programming is targeted to work toward bridging the academic achievement gap evident between families in middle- or upper-income households with those in households whose incomes fall below these economic lines.
