Ending Homelessness Award Recipient Announced February 16, 2023

Danielle Hickox Moore of The Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, Inc.


Danielle Hickox Moore’s philanthropic spirit and compassion for those in need has been a catalyst for positive change for many charitable organizations in Palm Beach County and beyond. Understanding the necessity of The Lord’s Place’s mission and work in our community, The Mary Alice Fortin Foundation stepped forward with a $4 million lead gift to the agency’s Home for Good Campaign in 2019.

“When giving to The Lord’s Place, we are confident the funds are truly being used to transform lives by providing the best solutions to both prevent and end homelessness for one individual at a time in Palm Beach County. It takes the entire community–foundations, corporations, and individuals alike–to step forward and support financially responsible and ethical charities like The Lord’s Place to end local homelessness for good,” Moore stated.

Moore’s support through The Mary Alice Fortin Foundation made all the difference in The Lord’s Place’s confidence to know they could move forward with their first-ever capital initiative to raise $20 million.

Moore has been the President of Fortin Enterprises since 1986 and President of The Mary Alice Fortin Foundation since 1993. She is also a Director of The Fortin Foundation of Florida since 1986 and a Director of the Barker Welfare Foundation since 1996 where she currently serves as President.  Moore sits on the boards of many charitable organizations including The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach, the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County, Rosarian Academy, Town of Palm Beach United Way, Women’s Southern Golf Association, Duke Engage National Advisory Board, The Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University, and the Duke Leadership Gifts Committee.   Moore was elected to the Town of Palm Beach Town Council in 2015 and was elected as Mayor of the Town of Palm Beach in 2021.

The Lord’s Place is most grateful for Moore’s services to all the charitable organizations in our community but especially for her passion to eradicate homelessness.
