Path of Grace Thrift Store relocating

Published: Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 11:31 AM.

The thrift store is also a place where women can earn a sense of pride in their hard work. Deliveries, sales, managing — it's all done by the 15 or so women in the program.

"They're even in the process of moving inventory to the new store now," Mansfield said. "They run the store themselves. It's also a safe environment to work in while they're growing in recovery."

The Path of Grace program is supported almost entirely by the thrift store and private donations. The next big goal the organization is fundraising for is a second home to add on their property in Santa Rosa Beach . With more space to sell, the thrift store might help bring more dreams to fruition.

"We would like to see ourselves helping more ladies in the future," Mansfield said. "I love to see people's lives change from where they are to where they can be."
