Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) is the only dedicated family shelter in West Contra Costa County. They house up to 65 individuals – primarily families with children – in their Richmond facility.
GRIP’s mission is to provide a safe and nourishing place that helps those who are unsheltered and experiencing poverty move toward self-sufficiency. Over the past near 60 years, they have evolved from a small community food pantry to a multiservice agency, which serves 15,000 homeless, hungry, and low-income clients annually.
From the clients to the staff to the volunteers, the people of Greater Richmond Interfaith Program (GRIP) are an amazing community. Their motto is "GRIP CARES" and they live it every day.
That's why we were thrilled to partner with them to bring some special holiday cheer through two special programs:
On Saturday, December 16th, we hosted 20 friends from GRIP’s family shelter, for a holiday concert and luncheon at Grace Cathedral.
On Friday, December 22nd, we delivered bags of Christmas gifts purchased by our amazing Impact Fund community.
Thank you to the Episcopal Impact Fund community for supporting our friends at GRIP this holiday season. You're generosity made Christmas a season to remember.
