The Momentum Center and The Just Goods Gift and Coffee Shop, two parts of Extended Grace, were established to provide a place for people with mental illness, addiction or developmental delays to gather and make social connections. The center and shop are located on Columbus Avenue in Grand Haven’s Centertown district.
According to the Extended Grace website: “We believe that as human beings we can all do a better job extending grace to each other and to ourselves. We provide opportunities to do so by forming collaborative relationships and offering programs and events to nurture, educate and inspire individuals so that together we can address issues of social justice and human rights.”
Tri-Cities Women Who Care is an alliance of women whose purpose is to help local charitable organizations by streamlining fundraising. Since its inception in September 2010, at least 250 women have met quarterly for one hour, heard presentations from local organizations and voted to determine which agency receives their checks. Since its inception, the group has awarded more than $890,000 to local organizations.
The group is open to all and welcomes new members at any time. The next meeting will be Thursday, Sept. 20, at 5:30 p.m. at Spring Lake Country Club.
