Key Programs

What We Do

In the last year, The Lord’s Place served 1,782 individuals experiencing housing instability, poverty, criminal justice involvement, and other barriers to self-sufficiency. We conducted outreach to 651 people living on the streets, housed 419 children and adults, assisted 347 unemployed adults with job training services, and provided health care and coordination to 143 clients with behavioral health conditions. Throughout the year, we continued to strengthen and expand our programs. We completed a new strategic plan to guide our goals and objectives through 2025. We developed a new housing program for homeless men and gained final site plan approval to construct Burckle Place 3, a housing program for homeless women. We secured major contracts with the county government to sustain our street outreach, emergency shelter, and reentry programs. Through our advocacy initiative, we supported a number of causes aligned with our mission, particularly affordable housing for low-income households. We partnered with Congresswoman Lois Frankel to obtain federal funding to renovate the apartments at our Family Campus, which houses children and parents in West Palm Beach. Finally, the construction of our Australian Avenue headquarters continues to move forward. We expect the new 25,000 square foot building, which will house our job training, engagement, and reentry centers, to begin serving clients in early 2023.
