About GraceWorks Ministries

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.

Today, GraceWorks has expanded upon these relationships to establish a referral network with other agencies to provide help for immediate needs and long-term resources. GraceWorks focuses on four areas—family supporthunger preventionseasonal needs and educational programs. Through its many programs, GraceWorks fulfilled 50,069 needs valued at $4.5 million in 2015.
