WELCOME TO THE CENTER

nurturing children, strengthening families, building community

 

Our community is a diverse, unique blend of people from backgrounds spanning class, race, culture, and language. The Center of Grace sits in the heart of downtown Olathe, an ideal location for programs that benefit our whole community – from the most vulnerable in need of basic services, to those looking to bring self-sufficiency and stability to their lives. Inspired by faith and empowered by our many community partnerships, our mission is to build relationships that lead to lasting change for our city.

Highlighted Ministry: Clothing Closet

We are excited to announce the grand re-opening of our clothing closet; we have been closed since early October when we flooded. We have new flooring, fresh paint and a new lay-out. The Center of Grace clothing ministry receives and distributes clothes for babies, children, youth, women and men. We also have linens, household goods, toys and books. In 2018 we served 6,793 people through the Clothing Closet. We also helped 825 Olathe students get a new pair of shoes in partnership with the Olathe Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund. The closet is open to the public on Wednesdays from 4:30 – 6 pm and on Saturdays from 9 – 11 am We accept donations on Mondays and Thursdays from 1-4 pm. All the work is done by volunteers from the community.
