The Lord's Place is an amazing organization that does incredible good for the community it serves; I volunteered over the course of this summer and my expectations were far exceeded. The feel of the organization is familial: clients, volunteers, staff, and administration all work together seamlessly with humility and kindness. This organization changes lives of both the served and the serving, and I am honored to have been able to witness and partake in the wonderful things the Lord's Place does every single day.

having seen the compassion and the kindness that the volunteers and staff exhibit at The Lords Place it is clear that this is a very special place.

reading the review of the person who gave them one star it is apparent that the reviewers mitigating circumstances are very serious. but in my experience the front door at the lords place is a sanctuary filled with good people doing their best to help those people who are truly seeking to end their homelessness.

having spent many hours volunteering in the cafe, i have seen the staff sit down with individuals that most of us wouldnt even see driving down the street. i have seen them break bread with these folks and really work hard to find those folks the assistance they need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make more organizations like this one around the country. its a program that works.

Due to mitigating circumstances, I am forced to seek assistance and in the immediate area of where I am - there are NO services to assist community members who have lost employment (and I didn't qualify for unemployment)
Nonetheless, I found this facility on line and I called July 9th, 2014; the woman that answered the phone was absolutely HATEFUL......something that the name of the facility - LORDS PLACE INC. is contradicting to say the least.

With that said, I am more inclined to disavow my Christian faith because of people like her. It was UNCALLED FOR AND UNNECESSARY.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

FIRE THE WOMAN THAT ANSWERED THE PHONE AND COMPORTED HERSELF LESS THAN A HUMAN BEING, DEVOID OF ANY COMMON DECENCY - DID NOT COMPORT HERSELF LIKE A CHRISTIAN.

It's not just what a charity does that is important, it's also how the charity shows their appreciation to the volunteers who help. It pleases me to say that The Lord's Place does both the best in my experience.
Thanks to the team that runs The Lords Place for making miracles in peoples lives, and for creating an environment where volunteers want to participate.

I have been volunteering at the Lord's Place for several years and they have been able to make a huge impact on south Florida. They have been able to successfully break the cycle of homelessness for hundreds of people while teaching and counseling them so they can be productive and self sufficient.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand their operations to other areas of the country

The Lord's Place provides, not only the essentials but, they provide individuals with the tools and skill sets that will help them improve themselves in life. This allows those individuals to break the cycle so that they are able to provide their own subsistance in life.

I worked part-time for this organization several years ago and currently serve in a volunteer capacity. I continue to be impressed by the way that The Lord's Place finds ways to effectively and creatively serve clients with a variety of life-changing programs. Their latest endeavors--including a revamped Cafe Joshua and the opening of the much-needed Burckle Place-- are shining examples of ways that their staff, board, and volunteers are serving and connecting with our community and making it a better place in which to live.
