Though our agency has undergone significant challenges, growth and changes throughout the years, Grace’s original passion, mission and resilience remains at the very heart of Bauer Family Resources. Today, with just 150 employees, Bauer Family Resources is able to impact the lives of over 10,000 individuals every year.
