About The Quest for Grace Foundation

The Quest for Grace Foundation was created and named for Julia Grace, the foster child of founders Michele and Louis Ianniello, who touched the lives and souls of all who knew her. She was aptly named, as her “grace” under difficult circumstances humbled us all. Her time with us was a gift. 

Our primary focus is arranging donations of new and gently used clothing for foster children. We currently serve the foster care communities in Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren, Columbia, Washington and Albany Counties and the Northeast Parent & Child Society. 

To be eligible for help, we do not require that foster families belong to any particular religious affiliation or financially support our organization in any way. We do ask that you return one good deed with another. This way, the cycle of compassion and goodwill continues indefinitely.

“What Michele and her foundation have done for our foster children is nothing short of amazing. She has quality goods for them and is always striving to find the latest and greatest supplies. Her mission is one to be admired and I truly don’t know what we would have done without her kindness. We have had emergency placements where the children come with virtually nothing but a plastic bag with a couple of items in it. Thank you Michele and Quest for Grace. You are truly a blessing to us all!”
