Jesus tried to teach us that our love and concern for others is demonstrated not just by our thoughts and prayers, but by our actions. He taught us that, "if you have done it unto the least of my children, you have done it unto me." The Lord's Place does not engage in what it does to earn praise or recognition. They do it to help others. What is a better way to exemplify Christianity than that? Three cheers and blessings for The Lord's Place. Dr. Jim Weaver.

What the Lords Place has done with their thrift store and in-house catering businesses has helped formerly homeless people and families get back on their feet and once again be contributers to society. They are well deserving to be rated a first class nonprofit and worthy of funding and volunteers.

I have been a supporter of The Lord's Place since I was a newspaper reporter 30 years ago when it was first started by Brother Joe and others including Jack Scarola. I admired the mission to help the homeless and donated what I could as a young professional. For the past 8 years I have had the opportunity to get to see the amazing work of The Lord's Place close up as the public relations consultant to the agency. There are so many stories of success and accomplishment to share. The staff and board truly care and effective in bring best practices to the mission, the clients are amazing in their commitment to changing their lives and the public seems to understand that this is an agency that is doing important work in our community. Please support this agency which is taking the lead in helping some of the most vulnerable in our community.

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

Provide more financial support so its services could be provided to even more of those in need.

I have worked with The Lord's Place for nearly 10 years and find it to be one of the most professionally-run, client-oriented organizations in the field. Instead of looking for funding sources and designing programs that fit certain grants, The Lord's Place constantly aligns its programs to meet its clients' needs and finds funding from a variety of sources to meet those needs. The real key to the success of The Lord's Place is the individualized and in depth attention paid to each of the client's needs both short-term and long-term, combined with a deep level of caring and commitment to seeing the clients through to success. Second, and even third, chances are given to help clients find their way out of homelessness. It is a blessing to serve with them and this organization has dramatically changed thousands of lives.

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

Expand its staffing and programming so that the good that it does could be accessed by even more people.
