CLICK HERE to read up on and donate to a very worthwhile cause!

"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 an all-too-often chaotic world.

We have a vision at Granny's House to reach the children of Columbia's inner city before their lives are shaped by destructive behaviors or become entangled in the legal system. We truly believe there is a "window of opportunity" now to make a permanent and very real change in their lives.

We try to provide the things a grandmother might provide: nourishing food, a listening ear, guidance when needed, prayer, time to read a book together or to watch someone do a cartwheel. It's a comforting place where there is always someone "home" when the kids get home from school. It's orderly but fun; there are rules but hugs, too."

    Their main export seems to be the very drugs that are destroying Our Country so I say up their A**es let them eat coke and leave us alone. They could stop or slow down the DEATH being exported to Our Country but they could care less about us and we should feel the same about them?

    Perez, you rule! This is definitely a good cause, and right here in CoMo! There is definitely a need for a place for some of these kids to go…I've seen too many kids here with great potential throw it away because of hanging with the wrong crowd. Programs like this and the Boys and Girls Club are great, but they need the funding desperately to be able to pay for transporting kids from school, amongst many other things. Thank you so much for mentioning it! XOXO (and donate, people!! :) )

    This is my first time on your website! and I can't believe you posted about Grany's House, from little ol' Columbia, MO. It is a great cause, I have even volunteered there. The staff is so nice, but the place is so under-funded, so please donate!
    How did you even hear about this place, is what I want to know???
