Partners in Ministry

The Partners in Ministry Designated Offering Program at Grace is one of the ways that we are Reaching Out in Christ's Love. Each month, we pass the plate for an organization that aligns with our Mission, and about whose mission our members and friends feel passionately. Our impact is doubled thanks to the Grace Foundation, who match every gift dollar for dollar, up to $2,000/month.

July 2021: Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA)



Since 1918, EFAA has been a locally operated community safety net for families in times of need. Throughout EFAA’s 100 year plus history, the organization has helped tens of thousands of families get back on their feet, and been supported by tens of thousands of donors and volunteers dedicated to EFAA’s mission.

 

EFAA helps those in our community whose immediate needs for food, shelter and other basic necessities cannot be adequately met by other means, and supports their efforts toward financial stability or self-sufficiency. As Boulder’s Family Resource Center, they are dedicated to helping members of our community meet their immediate needs and springboard out of poverty.

August 2021: Boulder Shelter for the Homeless



The Boulder Shelter for the Homeless provides opportunities for housing solutions, safe shelter, food and support services for up to 160 individuals year around. Founded in 1982, the Boulder Shelter is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Boulder, Colorado. They provide homeless services for adults in Boulder County.

 

Their mission is to create avenues to stable housing for our community's homeless adults, from a foundation of supportive and safe shelter.

September 2021: Himalayan Development Foundation



The Himalayan Development Foundation is a local entity based in Superior and founded and led by Mr. Karma Sherpa. Karma Sherpa is a native of Chhulemu -- a small village in the mountains of Nepal that was devastated by earthquake in 2015. The Foundation takes on projects that have meaningful impact, measurable results, and (as much as possible) no administrative costs. Currently, the Foundation is working on four (4) projects: 1. Rebuilding Chhulemu, 2. Skylights for Schools, 3. Toilets for Taksindu, and 4. Medical Mission in Taksindu. Each of these projects are staffed by volunteers under the direction of Karma Sherpa.
