Advocacy


The Lord’s Place engages in advocacy and systemic reform initiatives to advance the interests of people experiencing homelessness and those who are formerly incarcerated.

Our main priorities are currently, but not limited to, the support of affordable housing through the Sadowski Housing Trust Fund, and voting rights for returning citizens.  A robust and diverse advocacy committee sets these priorities.  This committee recognizes the disproportionate representation of people of color within these systems due to historical inequality, and applies a racial justice approach to address these disparities.

Through our advocacy, we have accomplished:

– Increased funding for homeless services in Palm Beach County
– Increased local funding for reentry services
– Expanded job opportunities for the reentry population
– Influenced companies to adopt legislation such as “Ban the Box.”

Affordable Housing

Breaking the cycle of homelessness starts with housing.
The Sadowski Coalition advocates for Florida’s housing programs, fighting to keep the state and local housing trust funds.
Increasing affordable housing is part of the solution to end homelessness.

What is the Sadowski Trust Fund?
