Overall Score & Rating 91.45 four stars
  Financial 95.00 four stars
  Accountability & Transparency 89.00 three stars
This rating was published 06/01/2020 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

GraceWorks Ministries, Inc. was founded in 1995, when area concerned citizens and faith leaders came together and decided Williamson County needed a central place to send people who needed help with food, clothing and financial assistance. By pooling church resources with private and public sectors, GraceWorks was able to provide more help for many needs to better serve our community, rather than duplicating efforts.
