We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

GRIP Organization and Mission

GRIP is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic coalition of congregations from varied faiths working together as a diverse and inclusive coalition dedicated to helping those of our community in need to transition to self-sufficiency. Our mission statement: “Responding to the Call to Service, GRIP transforms the lives of homeless, hungry and disenfranchised people.” Over the years, GRIP, in keeping with its mission has evolved from a small community food pantry to a multiservice agency, which serves 15,000 homeless, hungry, and low-income consumers annually. GRIP is governed by a 15-member Board of Directors drawn from member congregations, the business community and public-sector agencies.

GRIP’s staff consists of a dedicated group of individuals who have a unique ability to establish rapport with consumers. As a result, GRIP has earned the reputation as a trusted housing and service provider with a proven track record for making inroads with individuals who have histories of chronic homelessness. GRIP, equally, is noted for being fiscally responsible and transparent in accounting practices and reporting. GRIP maintains lines of open communication with its donors, funders, and community supporters.

Each January, GRIP shares an Annual Report with multiple stakeholders at the Annual Meeting. GRIP has provided emergency shelter and housing for families since 1993. The Souper Center provides meals and basic needs to the community since GRIP’s inception in 1966. Our dedicated 41-member congregations are our front line of volunteers and support. This year, GRIP celebrates 50 years providing services to the community.

~~"Go ahead and buy that big Costco pack of toothbrushes or deodorant. Keep one for yourself, and bring the rest to GRIP along with your sandwiches."~~As you got ready for your day today, you probably didn't think about that tube of toothpaste or the soap in the shower. But we do. Our bins are running empty. Toothpaste. Kids' toothbrushes. Lotion. We don't even have a bin for deodorant because we never get enough donations to put them in a bin. Yes, people experiencing homelessness appreciate the same things you do. A nice smelling bar of soap. Clean teeth. Deodorant. Feminine products. A clean towel. Maybe even a duffle bag to keep their possessions in. While GRIP appreciates and needs your financial donations, don't forget to buy an extra pack of socks. Go ahead and get that big Costco pack of toothbrushes or tampons. Keep some for yourself and bring the rest to GRIP along with your sandwiches each month. ... See MoreSee Less
