Yet, consider these words in Isaiah 43:2: “When you pass through…Keep Reading

The Rotary Club of Vestavia Hills said “YES!”

If you’ve been to our office recently, you’ve probably noticed we’re out of space. Food is replenished as soon as it leaves.

We started a building expansion initiative called 50K50Days and together we’ve raised over $10,000 so far. If…Keep Reading

No Wonder It’s Called Community

In August of 2016, The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham gifted Grace Klein Community with an amazing grant, allowing us to purchase a box truck.

Moon Take Thy Flight

His walk has improved and strengthening his left leg is…Keep Reading
