History

In 2000, Michelle Fanger had her second child, and like most mothers, Michelle felt an overwhelming sense of love and the need to protect and provide for her children.

Michelle found a common bond with these women who wanted to make a difference.

In 2005, Mother’s Grace held its first fundraiser to help support mothers whose families had been affected by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. It was through these efforts that Mother’s Grace was able to contribute to the rebuilding of several inner city schools that were suffering from mold contamination. Mother’s Grace also supports Beacon of Hope/St. Paul’s Homecoming, both charitable organizations that provide a safe haven from the wreckage, and a place where people within the community could do everything from a load of laundry, to consulting with an attorney, to relaxing with a cup of coffee.
