"People naturally gravitate toward good causes, and Grace Case is more than just a good cause - it's a "God cause." Through mentorship programming, Grace Case is empowering young girls to become the best version of themselves, the version that God intended. This organization is a beacon for DC, Maryland and Virginia, with an emotional commitment to helping young women understand the potential and power they wield in the present and future. Grace Case is proving that with intentional and thoughtful mentorship, cycles of low self-esteem can be replaced with confidence. Grace Case is proving that we don't have to be defined by the neighborhood we grow up in. Grace Case is proving that we don't have to live in the shadow of our past mistakes. We need more "grace cases" walking through the doors of our schools, grocery stores, hospitals and more! Grace Case is ensuring that our communities are overflowing with strong women that are change agents for generations to come. Thank you, Grace Case for the work you do to secure a healthy future for our young women."
"Since being a mentee of Grace Case my development as a young woman has dramatically increased. Grace Case has done a phenomenal job with selecting a diverse group of young women to bridge that gap between mentor and mentee. Grace Case has developed a culture of sisterhood and I am glad to call the mentees my sisters. I am also glad to have a relationship with my individual mentor as well as other Grace Case mentors. Lastly, Grace Case focuses on a holistic approach; although being a faith based nonprofit organization, Grace Case doesn’t have a blind eye with other real life issues. I am honored to be a Grace Case mentee!"
"Grace Case is an organization that has tremendously impacted my life. I started Grace Case when I was at a low point in my life. However, since I have been apart of GC, I have grown in confidence, leadership, and my relationship with God has also grown. GC has also allowed me to connect with wonderful and other talented young women, who keep me accountable. Overall Grace Case develops and helps young women such as myself grow, not only spiritually but mentally and physically."

I have enjoyed working as the Director of Education Curriculum at GCM. LaShawn has a wonderful vision for helping young women. Developing session presentations with her has been fun. The Board of Directors feels like an adult sisterhood as we generate plans to assist young women define themselves and make plans for their futures in college and career. I have especially enjoyed presenting at cycle sessions to discuss with our mentees their ideas as they formulate their plans.

"Grace Case's first community partnership event was annual Tots to Teen Expo in PG County and I remember speaking to a young lady who was expecting. She expressed how she was nervous having a baby and her parents had put her out. I was able to minister to her about my daughter having a baby during her graduation year and how disappointed I was but the love of God covered the situation and how I was able get passed my disappointed. I encouraged her that her parents would come around. The event was a great success for me because of that one young lady.
