About Grace Place
Grace Place Shelter, located in Somerset, opened in 2001 to provide shelter to homeless individuals and families residing in the St. Croix River Valley. The former convent at St. Anne's Catholic Church in Somerset, Wisconsin, was renovated to provide accomodations for up to 25 people, and became Grace Place, St. Croix County's first transitional housing shelter. Our facility is staffed around the clock giving us the ability to house 8 families or 25 individuals.
Our goal is to promote self-sufficiency by providing a safe and secure environment, giving individuals the opportunity to overcome unresolved issues. Through education, individuals are encouraged to be responsible for themselves and others. During their 30-90 day stay we identify any immediate needs and develop a housing stabilization plan for the family. Our extensive program empowers individuals and families to become independent, creating a safer community for all of us.
Harmony House, a single family home located in Somerset, serves one family at a time. This home allows families the opportunity to rebuild their lives as they transition back into independent living.
Grace Place serves residents in St. Croix and surrounding counties. The Pierce/St. Croix Housing Resource Network, United Way of St. Croix County, and The Salvation Army founded and support Grace Place.
During their 30-60 day stay at the shelter, residents are provided with food, education, activities, counseling, and assistance in finding jobs and permanent housing. By providing a place to live and access to essential community resources, our programs empower residents to become self-sufficient.
