To our community, donors and friends near and far, thank you for an amazing 2023 Ending Homelessness Breakfast! We are filled with gratitude as the 2023 event, themed "Welcome Home," was a resounding success.

Presenting sponsor GL Homes, and Kerry & Michael Diaz, honorary chairs, helped us welcome more than 600 guests as clients shared stories of transformation and success. Jim Kukla humbly accepted our Ending Homelessness Award by thanking our community and clients. Together, we hope the tone was set for a holiday season filled with inspiration and hope. Please click the links below for videos that were shared at the event, as well as photos taken from the day.

More than $250,000 was raised to support our mission of ending the cycle of homelessness here in Palm Beach County. Our heartfelt gratitude to all who support The Lord's Place so we can continue to "Welcome Home" more clients in the future.
