Where are Open Houses located?
Baby Grace’s home is at the Odessa First United Methodist Church, but is a non-denominational organization. Odessa First United Methodist Church, 301 S 1st St Odessa, Mo 64076.
What does this location provide?
Free diapers and wipes
We manage a distribution center where we accept donations of used mother/child items for children ages 0 – 5. Those donated items are made available to Baby Grace families for free at monthly diaper distributions. Because all items are donated, we can never guarantee availability of any item.
Baby Grace Camp – Held every summer, this church camp is designed specifically for Baby Grace families (moms and their children ages 4 and under, dads and their children age 5 and up, and families consisting of two adults with children of all ages). Spots are limited, so applications are accepted in the spring and moms are selected based on their application and space availability.
Spiritual support – Prayer requests are accepted (and acted upon!) at every monthly event. Pastoral support is also available upon request.
Do I need to register for this location's Baby Grace?
Facebook rsvp by Sunday before event -fill out our one page form or call Jeannette Hisek for a private meeting.
Are there qualifications I need to meet or paperwork I need to bring to participate?
No! We don’t care how old you are, what city you live in, or what your family situation is. If you have kids between the ages of 0 and 5 and need our help, then we want to help you!
Our only qualification would be for the mom’s to only take things for their own use.
When is this location open?
Second Wednesday of the month – diaper distributions 5:00 – 6:00 PM. Must pre-register before the prior Sunday on the Facebook page.
I have donations, where do I drop them off?
People frequently ask how they can donate to Odessa Baby Grace! First of all, let me say THANK YOU!!
We keep this group going primarily through donations, big and small! We will gladly accept new diapers and wipes or money to purchase them.
You can bring donations to any Baby Grace event. You can also call the Odessa First United Methodist Church at 816-230-4926 to make arrangements.
As always, thank you for thinking of Odessa Baby Grace with your donations!!
