Contribute to the Scholarship Fund For Grace House Guests

The Barb James Memorial Scholarship Fund provides tuition assistance to Grace House guests who are pursuing post-secondary education. You can make a monetary donation safely and securely with your credit card, debit card or PayPal account. Click Give Online.

Grace House will award two $500 scholarships each year—one in the fall and one prior to the spring semester. Eligible recipients include current Grace House guests and those who have stayed at the shelter within the past two years. Scholarships may be used to obtain Associates and Bachelor degrees as well as occupational certificates (e.g. Certified Nursing Assistant, Commercial Driver License, etc.) from any Minnesota university, community college or trade school.

The scholarship fund was established via a generous donation to honor the memory of Barb James, who passed away suddenly February 13, 2014. Ms. James and life partner, Bernie Dehn own Lawrence Lake Liquor. A retired educator, Barb was a passionate literacy and human rights advocate. She envisioned a world free from discrimination and one that offers equal opportunities for housing, education and employment. The scholarship fund is managed via the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation.

The first Barb James Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Grace House guest Salina Goodwin by Ms. Dehn last Wednesday, August 13, 2014—the six-month anniversary of Barb’s untimely death. After meeting Ms. Goodwin and hearing her plans at Itasca Community College, Ms. Dehn enthused, “I’m really happy about the scholarship! And a day that otherwise would’ve been very difficult was very special!”
