FAMILIES IN TRANSITION
Children & Teens in Foster Care
On Gracie's Wings Foundation supports children and teens in foster care by providing them with the clothing, toys, school supplies and shoes in an effort to ease their transition to a new home. We also work with potential foster families and their case workers to obtain furniture and supplies needed to welcome new children in their homes.
Whether it is a domestic violence situation, medical emergency or natural disaster On Gracie's Wings Foundation helps local families start over by allowing them to come "shop" for items needed to rebuild their lives.
On Gracie's Wings Scholarship & Grant Program
Every year the On Gracie's Wings Foundation will award scholarships to local teens and young adults that desire to continue their education while overcoming difficult circumstances and defying the odds. There are also grants available to young people looking to improve their surroundings through a commitment to community service.
The On Gracie's Wings Foundation has moved to a new location. As of December 1, 2017, we now occupy the former thrift store located on the grounds of St. Peter's Church in Glenside. The new location allows us to expand Gracie's Closet to more families in need and also serve as the official headquarters for the On Gracie's Wings Foundation, allowing us to provide more support in the form of community workshops and development. The courtyard at St. Peter's Church is also the site where the memorial bench honoring Grace Packer was placed.
