Learn more about the beginnings of The Grace Project and our goal to Drive Hope to Kensington through their amazing outreach.
Meet our newest Hope Partner – The Grace Project.
After nearly a decade battling a drug addiction that left her estranged from everyone she loved, Megan Cohen started the Grace Project to help others still struggling on the streets of Philadelphia.
Headquartered in Bucks County, The Grace Project aims to bring hope through acts of kindness to children and adults impacted by sickness, poverty, or addiction through three programs. Every Thursday, their Kensington Outreach brings essential supplies to the homeless suffering with drug use disorders. They also help place individuals in treatment and clean up a section of the neighborhood.

Right now, staff and volunteers are using their personal vehicles, filled to the brim with food, clothing, and cleaning supplies, to make the weekly trips into Kensington. Clearly, this situation is challenging for several reasons. First, there is only so much space in personal cars so this trip becomes a caravan of cars driving into the city. Second, when delivering hot meals, there isn’t a practical way to keep the food warm. Additionally, the folks who often need the most help don’t recognize these cars as volunteers coming with food, toiletries, clothes, and other necessities. Lastly, it isn’t a safe way to transport individuals seeking treatment.
You can help us Drive Hope by supporting Sauers Cares as we donate a vehicle with a branded wrap to The Grace Project.
