Citizens Concerned for the Homeless recognizes its clients’ need for education. Often lacking a high school diploma and other basic life skills, many have little chance of working their way out of poverty and into sustainable self-sufficiency.
Grace Learning Center is the epicenter for education opportunities, life skills and self-help meetings in Michigan City and LaPorte County. We offer approximately 20 classes, workshops and support groups (including 12-step) on a monthly basis, allowing individuals to recognize and address the barriers that create the vicious cycle of recurring life challenges, criminal thinking, substance abuse, and homelessness.
With collaboration from community partners, we offer these learning opportunities with facilitators from Goodwill Workforce Solutions, Purdue Extension, A.K. Smith Career Center, Keys to Hope, Healthy Communities and HealthLinc.
As a WorkOne access point and SCSEP partner in Michigan City, we offer on-site job opportunities for individuals seeking to re-enter the workforce through second chance training programs.
All programs are free and open to the public. Children are welcome, but anyone under 18 must be supervised by a parent or guardian.
Anyone interested in volunteering or facilitating a class at GLC may reach out to Program Developer Erica Morse for more information by calling (219) 879-6788 or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8am – 5pm.
