Grace Raleigh has several thriving and meaningful partnerships with ministries that work across the border, overseas and throughout the world.
Addis Jemari works with teenage girls who are orphaned or find themselves in vulnerable positions to encourage, educate and empower. The organization provides a safe home and an education to young women who have aged out of orphanages. The organization has also just launched a family empowerment program. Addis Jemari was co-founded by Grace Raleigh partner Suzanne Ward.
Faith Ministry – Just across the border from McAllen, Texas, in the colonias of Reynosa, Miguel Aleman and Naranjito, is third-world poverty. Many families live in wooden shacks that provide little or no protection from the elements.
Faith Ministry provides hope and a new life for these families — sturdy new houses constructed from cinder blocks, academic scholarships, a medical clinic, a feeding program for babies and children, and a thriving church.
Grace has partnered with Faith Ministry for many years and generally offers at least one mission trip each year to construct houses and build friendships.
Rise Against Hunger is a Raleigh-based international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger for more than 15 years. Since 1998, the organization has coordinated the distribution of food and other lifesaving aid to children and families in countries all over the world. Grace usually sponsors two meal packing events each year.
