Founded in 2004, Grace Outreach serves low-income women ages 18 and older in New York City who want to enhance their academic skills, pursue higher education, and find employment. While beginning primarily as a GED education center, Grace Outreach has grown into a successful larger organization offering training for the high school equivalency test (now called the TASC), a college program helping students to start and graduate from college, and a full array of career services.

With UNFCU Foundation’s support, Grace Outreach will help 200 low-income women gain their first educational credential: their high school equivalency degree, an important tool in their paths to improved college and career options. After graduation, Grace Outreach will support approximately 100 women to gain employment and to begin college, helping them to move towards economic security and increasing their ability to support themselves and their families.
