Visualize a place which opens its doors to welcome all and supports the diverse needs of the community with a variety of resources.

Often such resources are completely unknown – unless you need them or you’re a volunteer. They are quiet, behind the scenes, providing help and services throughout the year.

The community outreach building at Grace Episcopal Church in Old Saybrook is that “go to” place, that resource.  The building hosts – for free – a number of nonprofit organizations working to help others: twelve-step recovery groups, Boy Scouts of America, Common Good Gardens, Early Childhood Education Head Start, Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries, homework clubs, monthly social servicegrace episcopal project logo_c help days, and so much more. Lots of great things happen in that special place.

Now the community outreach building needs help; its own roof is in desperate need of repair and the expense is well beyond the church’s
financial capacity. Enter a dedicated group of volunteers who contacted the Community Foundation of Middlesex County to establish the SPECIAL COMMUNITY OUTREACH FUND.

Community does come together under one roof – and has for almost 50 years. Together, through the Special Community Outreach Fund, we can help, literally, keep a roof over the heads of organizations and volunteers for years to come.
