The Lord’s Place transforms lives by providing solutions that break the cycle of homelessness for the most vulnerable and neglected in Palm Beach County. Recently, Representative Lois Frankel presented nearly one million dollars to the Lord’s Place in West Palm Beach to help the organization rebuild its family campus located on Haverhill Road. The organization houses thirty-seven families. The check was in the amount of $998,900. The money is a part of community project funding and the 2022 spending bill passed by Congress earlier this month.
Leaders at the Lord’s Place, established in 1983, requested the money for much-needed improvements, which will now go towards updating the kitchen, bathrooms, and floors. The center helps to fight homelessness and provides shelter and housing to families in a variety of situations. Construction will begin within the next few months.
“Family campus has been a staple of housing for families experiencing homelessness and unfortunately we just never had the money to update it and to renovate it and do the things we need to do to bring it up to speed,” said Diana Stanley, CEO, the Lord’s Place. “We are just so thrilled."
