Having served on the Board of The Lord's Place since it's inception over thirty years ago, I have directly witnessed the quality and quantity of the organization's impact on the lives of individuals caught involuntarily in the otherwise inescapable trap of poverty and homelessness. Thousands of lives have been salvaged through the work of an extraordinarily caring , competent, and dedicated staff delivering focused services through innovative programs.

I have been an active member of my community all of my professional life and believe in the power of volunteerism and care. The Lord's Place is the single most results oriented organization I have been a part of. The organization has saved lives and repaired families and is improving in its mission every day.

The Lord’s Place exemplifies what a non-profit social service organization should be. For more than 30 years it has helped homeless individuals and families not only with “a hand up” but also as a leader and advocate in the community. It focuses on the needs of its clients and is recognized as “the voice of the homeless" in our community. It has been nationally recognized for the work it does and it continues to play a leadership role in guiding both public and private dialogue on how to most effectively serve the needs of homeless people. Not only has it changed the lives of many through the services it offers, it has also changed the way many who have never been homeless view those less fortunate than them. I am very proud to have been a long time supporter and volunteer of The Lord’s Place and will continue to be for as long as I am able.

I have been a board member with The Lord's Place for the past few months, after having been involved with the organization in a volunteer/cupporter capacity. What attracted me to this organization is its high level of commitment to its clients - the chronically homeless; its exceptionally talented and dedicated managment team (truly unparalleled and exceptional); their innovative initiatives and programming that has met great success, and continues to challenge the status quo; and a culture of caring and concern for their clients, staff, and the greater community. A donation to The Lord's Place is an investment in a long term commitment and a results oriented program that is making a difference in breaking hte cycle of homelessness. I recommend this organization in any way you are able to serve or support it - without reservation or hesitation!

The Lord's Place is changing lives every day. They are taking on more programs and positively affecting more people every day. The staff is kind and patient and wait till their clients are ready for the first or next step. The clients are treated with dignity and kindness. The Lord's Place is breaking the cycle of homelessness in Palm Beach County. Look for the Women's Campus to open in 2013 as the first of it's kind in Palm Beach.
