Note: This is not an official FAQ for the GraceCity App or the Grace Network. This page is an effort to assist the Grace Network and the lead agency in Tulare County in the efforts to launch the Central Valley wide resources on the app.
The GraceCity App, created by human trafficking response organization, The Grace Network, features information on service providers at a touch of a few buttons, making it easier for those who work with those affected by exploitation to identify who can provide what they need. Currently the Sacramento region is available on the app. The Central Valley region will be added as a sufficient number of resources have been identified prior to launch.
Anyone can download the app and access these resources.
