Established in 1998, MISSION GRANBURY is one of Hood County's largest non-profit organizations with a unique service model that includes multiple interrelated human service programs under one umbrella. Through strong collaboration with other local organizations and a wide range of resources, Mission Granbury is the community hub for help, centralizing resources under one roof to help those in need or in crisis. Above all, we strive to treat each person with dignity and respect, assessing individual situations and providing immediate and long term assistance to move individuals and families to self-sufficiency.
Ada Carey Shelter for Women and Children
The Ada Carey Family Violence Shelter has provided safe haven for victims (women and children) of domestic violence and sexual assault since 1998 and is the only facility of its kind in our area.
Our New Beginnings Resale Shoppe is located at 1204 Waters Edge Drive, across from the movie theater and is filled with beautiful, new and gently used clothing, furniture and household items. Proceeds from the sale of these items is used to fund our family violence and emergency assistance programs. All items are donated by local community members.
In mid-2020, Mission Granbury absorbed the Senior Connection program, now known as Senior Care. The Senior Care program was created to provide assistance for seniors in Hood County with extraordinary needs that protect their health and safety. It also provides weekly grocery delivery for those who are homebound. Please call our Resource Center for more information.
CASA - Court Appointed Special Advocates
Mission Granbury's CASA program provides advocacy to over a hundred children in the foster care program every year. Volunteers serve as court appointed advocates and Guardian Ad Litum for children in the foster care system in Hood and Somervell counties.
Mission Granbury's Emergency Assistance Network provides a wide range of assistance including rent, utilities, prescriptions, gas, emergency shelter and other needs for individuals and families in crisis.
Non-Residential Victim Services
Not all victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or other crimes are eligible for our residential services and some are simply not ready to enter the shelter. Mission Granbury provides case management, including resources and referrals to all victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other crimes.
Mission Granbury is honored to partner with several other Hood County Veteran's organizations to provide a resource for emergency needs for our Veterans. Please call our Resource Center if you or someone you know is a Veteran in need of emergency assistance.
OUR COMMITTMENT TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
WE know that those we help come from all walks of life and so shall we. * WE strive to lead with values and beliefs that enable and empower employees and volunteers to bring their full self to the workplace. * WE believe that diversity is the presence and celebration of differences that enrich our workplace, including identity-focused characteristics, such as race, gender, disability or age. * WE are passionate about building an intentional culture that fosters the feeling of belonging and honors the differences of everyone. * WE believe there is true richness in our differences and that every person brings a unique perspective and experience that makes us stronger as an agency. * WE are committed to embracing these practices every day in our work and in our community.
