WELCOME TO A RICH PAST AND AN EXCITING FUTURE

Grace United Community Ministries is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, incorporated in August, 2004. We are an inter-denominational, faith-based ministry with a holistic approach to working hand-in-hand with the community to address the area’s largest problems.

Under the leadership of founding director Rev. Sharon Garfield, Grace responded to the needs of northeast Kansas City by providing shelter for battered women, establishing one of the first soup kitchens in the metropolitan area, helping to find low-income housing, providing reading tutoring for children, and setting up a food pantry and clothing closet for those in need. Her vision continues today and includes a new computer lab among other major renovations.  We look forward to serving our community well into the future.
