Organized in 1987, Grapevine Relief And Community Exchange (GRACE) is a Grapevine, Texas based relief agency which provides food, clothing, financial assistance, shelter and medical care. The impact of GRACE can be seen in the diabetic client who reversed his diagnosis through health education classes at the free GRACE Community Clinic, or the Mom who can provide new Christmas gifts to her children when she came to GRACE desperately focused on keeping the electricity from being shut off, or the young woman in Transitional Housing who enrolled in medical school and is starting her life again after fleeing domestic violence. GRACE is the place where people in need find kindness, compassion and hope to overcome their difficulties and begin again.

47% of GRACE's clients are the working poor. In 2017, GRACE served about 5,000 unduplicated clients, many of who live paycheck to paycheck; working hourly jobs with few benefits, struggling to make a better life for their families.
