Anti-Bully Backpacks are given away every year to children in the community. We fill each backpack with age-appropriate school supplies and supply our 24-hr hotline number.
If a child is being bullied, they are encouraged to call our number, and someone will follow up on the matter through the time of resolution.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions for our students. Your generous donation will fund our mission.

Cynthia is the founder of Grace Community Services, Inc., a 501c3 non-profit organization. After experiencing how the judicial system deals with families, she was moved to create a solution to the issues surrounding bullying. Her vision is to have a facility that serves the community by
tutoring, mentoring, educating, and providing spiritual guidance. Her dream is to create a safe haven where students can grow mentally and emotionally while being guided away from life’s quagmires.
After experiencing a number of life’s circumstances and challenges I realized that so many of
our young people today are in need of love and support. I created GCS to be an advocate for
young people going through their own challenges. I believe in our motto that “Giving Back
Through God’s Grace” is the key. At Grace Community Services we believe our motto is a
message of love.
