The Lord's Place helps so many individuals and families when they have no where else to go...It is a pleasure for me to donate household items, clothing and food whenever I can. I know that it will go to good use.

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 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.

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.

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.

I wanted to donate some furniture a couple years ago and The Lord's Place was the ONLY charitable organization that we the extra step to schedule a pickup at my convenience. The truck arrived on time with three very cheerful and energetic young men who loaded all the furniture in record time. When the time came to donate more furniture, I made one call - to The Lord's Place.

I have donated funds to The Lord's Place on more than one occasion. I believe it provides a unique model for charitable assistance to folks who are down on their luck and only need an empathetic ear and a helping hand to gain or regain a sense of dignity, pride, and self-worth, and join or rejoin the ranks of productive and happy members of society. We owe it to ourselves and our country to support charities like this that fill gaps in government assistance.

As a volunteer video producer, I've had numerous opportunities to work closely with both staff and the clients of The Lord's Place. I'm always impressed by the genuine concern and respect the staff has for their formerly homeless clients; and the long term planning, caring and compassion they bring to each person.

One of my most precious experiences is when I do in-depth interviews with the Lord's Place clients. I see up close how much the program has changed their lives, and how deeply grateful they are. The stories of redemption and change are among the most uplifting I had ever witnessed

I got the chance to volunteer with the Lords place two weeks ago with a group of high schoolers. We got a chance to work in a lot that they are working to turn into a park that will act as a space for kids to play as well as a community gathering garden, a place for people to be together. We had an incredible time working with the staff as well as some of older and younger members of the community. I was so warmed by the open arms that received us there. So grateful for this place.

I have been a volunteer at the Lords Place for 17 years. I know first hand the excellent work that is accomplished. The Lords Place gives a hand up rather than a hand out.

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.

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.

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.

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.
