The On Gracie's Wings Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit based out of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania that's committed to honoring the life and legacy of Grace Packer by supporting children in foster care, victims of domestic violence and other families in the middle of a difficult transition.
The On Gracie's Wings Foundation started after a group of moms from Abington, Pennsylvania decided to have a memorial service for a local teenager who spent her entire life in and out of the foster care system. The response from both the community and other foster children was so overwhelming, they decided to start a foundation in her honor.
In 2019, On Gracie's Wings and its new Board of Directors will shift it's focus to show all types of families that are experiencing some sort of difficult transition that there is help available. It is important for the community to not only recognize signs of neglect and abuse but to also know how to safely report these situations.
Beginning in July 2019, On Gracie's Wings will expand it's services to include help for foster care agencies, domestic violence victims, families with critically-ill children, and young adults that are defying the odds by pursuing a higher education despite their circumstances. Our new leadership is hard at work developing new resources and programs.
