Grace Like Rain, along with several local non-profits and churches, has been collaborating to establish a plan to assist families in the Denton area who will be greatly affected during the extended time of school closures in response to COVID-19. To minimize lost wages for families during this time, we will be opening multiple locations for childcare for Ages 3 to 11 years of age (5 grade) for the duration that schools are closed. The hours will be from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and will be housed at several local churches. We will require a referring agency or verification of services received from a local social service provider, along with employment verification. We will also be following all guidelines from health officials. If this is something you are in need of, please . If you are needing extended care to 6:00 PM, please email directly.
To make this happen, we will need your help. All sites will be run by volunteers and will provide breakfast and lunch for each child involved. Please sign up at to volunteer. There will also be additional funds needed to assist our families during this time. To donate financially, please do so at .
All volunteers will need to complete the GLR . We are asking that volunteers do not bring their own kids, if possible, as it will decrease the number of children we will be able to serve. With that in mind, we also understand that this might be a barrier to your availability to volunteer. If that is the case, please email GLR at .
