Description and Mission

Granny's House is a safe, nurturing place where public housing kids can come each day after school to see values, manners and God's love in action. We provide loving arms, a safe place to play or do homework and an atmosphere of hope and calm in a chaotic world. We have a vision at Granny's House to reach the children of Columbia's inner city before their lives are negatively shaped by destructive behaviors or become entangled in the legal system. Approximately 80% of the children enrolled are from African refugee families. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS OUR FIRST SEMESTER AT OUR NEW LOCATION: 110 E. WORLEY ST. ENTRANCE AND PARKING ARE AVAILABLE DIRECTLY BEHIND GRANNY'S HOUSE ON PENDLETON STREET.
