Grace Center Gloucester – Winter Location & Extended Hours

March 8, 2021

The Grace Center will operate out of the Gloucester House Restaurant through April, and then return to our home at the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church at 10 Church St.

As a day resource center for those in need of a safe and supportive environment, The Grace Center merged with Lifebridge in 2018.  This location provides daily meals, services, and referrals to those experiencing homelessness.

In December, 2020 we relocated to the Gloucester House Restaurant to accommodate more people at the appropriate social distance during the cold winter months.  We are currently open 7 days a week.  We are typically serving 50 individuals per day where we provide vital resources including meals, a warm safe to sit, telehealth, and some programming.  We plan to move back to our regular location in spring, 2021.
