Did you know that Palm Beach County ranks 2nd in Florida for the number of youth who experience housing instability? According to the School District, around 4,405 kids are homeless and there is not enough housing to meet their needs. The Lord's Place mission is to break the cycle of homelessness by providing innovative services to men, women, and children. For 40 years The Lord's Place, has been impacting the lives of families and individuals who have been homeless.

This year with the help from The Fathers Table Foundation, The Lord's Place will serve 50 families that total 65 adults and 110 children. Each night, The Lord's Place houses 37 families in central West Palm Beach. These families struggle with obstacles such as mental health issues, substance abuse, and last but not least, a lack of education. The support will help 90% of the families to keep or get stable housing. In addition, 80% of the youth will be on track to go to the next grade to further their education.
