Grace Smith House

The Grace Smith House is a residential facility in Poughkeepsie, New York, that serves domestically abused women and children. Bard students volunteer at the house, counseling the women and providing emotional support. All volunteers receive substantial training from Grace Smith. During the holidays, students raise funds to provide each of the residents with the gift of a new bathrobe. Lasting and encouraging relationships are fostered between the women and volunteers as awareness is raised about domestic violence and its emotional toll.
