Welcome to Your Opportunity to ‘Speak Up!’
Help The Lord’s Place advocate for people in need of housing.
SleepOut is a time for the community to gather and affirm their
commitment to end homelessness.
This event is our chance to respond to an
uncertain world and a growing need for housing people in need.
On any given night in Palm Beach County, there are 1,500 homeless individuals, and 54% of these individuals are unsheltered. (Point in Time Count, PBC, 2021)
You can make a difference!
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.
As the needs in our community constantly change, our priorities evolve to meet those needs. The Lord’s Place supports affordable housing, the Sadowski Housing Trust Fund, voting rights for returning citizens, and legislation to fund homeless services. A robust and diverse advocacy committee sets our priorities each year. 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.
