Thousands in Southwest Florida have participated in “Be a Santa to a Senior” Last Christmas over 5000 of our disadvantaged seniors received needed gifts (blankets, socks and the like). www.beasantatoasenior.com
Through the coordination of Grace Works, “Senior Wishmakers” recently painted a home of a senior that was still in disrepair several years after it was damaged by Hurricane Charlie. These projects are generally one day major acts of service. Grace Works collects the wishes and matches them to groups of volunteers. Families, businesses or organizations who sponsor the wish help those in need receive a renewed spirit and a deepened sense of worth.
Grace Works helping seniors remain in their homes when greater levels of support are needed. Age in Place helps needy seniors who cannot afford to pay for help to avoid premature and costly institutionalization. We provide an in-home caregiver to meet their most basic needs.
Here Grace Works volunteers and professional contractors ensuring safe, accessible living environments for anyone who could use a helping hand. Whether it is helping someone who is wheel-chair-bound replace an overhead kitchen light bulb or arranging for the installation of bathroom grab bars Grace Works is ready to help. We also coordinate workers to eliminate mobility or accessibility issues making it possible for people to live at home for a longer period of time.
Grace Work’s volunteers enhance the lives of seniors with a goal of developing warm and enduring friendships. We help those who’s friends may have passed away and whose children may live far away. These acts of grace help combat loneliness and fight depression that so often afflicts the elderly.

Grace Works opens doors for others who have great ideas for community service. We provide fiscal management, oversight and coaching by those experienced with not-for-profit start-ups. This service allows those with a particular passion to reach out to the community without having the burden of starting and managing their own not-for-profit corporation.
