Gratia Plena is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization which opened in 2012 to provide services in a unique manner to overcome barriers to treatment. We believe that mental and spiritual health are closely connected, and that the healing of the human person occurs through integration for deep transformation and flourishing. All guests are welcome at Gratia Plena. Our humble organization has survived and thrived through God's grace, the hard work of our all-Catholic workers and volunteers, and the kind donations of individuals, parishes, and private foundations.

May 15, 2021 update: All Gratia Plena offices are open for face-to-face visits. Most of our workers have had the COVID vaccine. Due to CDC guidance and executive orders from the Governor of Texas, we are no longer requiring the use of masks in our offices for those who are fully vaccinated for COVID. We do recommend the use of masks by workers and guests who are not fully vaccinated. We will continue to offer video telehealth as an option as needed, but we believe that meeting face-to-face for services is preferred. Meeting face-to-face may in fact be required when a guest is new or is in crisis. Our workers provided thousands of video telehealth sessions during the pandemic last year. We use a HIPAA compliant secure/private platform for our video telehealth sessions. Call the office to schedule a confidential in person or video telehealth meeting with one of our Catholic counselors or spiritual directors today!
