The foundation of Grace Campus goes back to 2011. During this time, our primary focus involved serving the homeless on the streets of Lubbock and working with incarcerated individuals in the Lubbock County Detention Center. We quickly realized that something more had to be done to truly help this population and establishing a non-profit was the first step.
Paul's Project became incorporated in Texas as a nonprofit corporation on December 9, 2014 and on January 26, 2015 received 501c3 status (only eleven days after submitting an application to the IRS). Shortly after, we received a call from the nonprofit that owned and operated Tent City stating that due to lack of funding and volunteer support they would be shutting down unless Paul's Project would take it. We agreed without hesitation knowing that an outside-the-box solution to homelessness, like Grace Campus, would make a positive impact in the lives of countless individuals.
Upon receiving ownership of Tent City, the first change was a new name. Tent City became Grace Campus. Today, Grace Campus is a transitional homeless shelter for approximately 75-90 individuals and tiny houses have replaced the worn-out army tents.
