A New Direction for The Lord’s Place Social Enterprises
The Lord’s Place has been serving the homeless in Palm Beach County for more than 40 years. It is led by a strategic and data-driven board that is focused on the future sustainability and success of the agency and the nearly 1,800 clients it serves annually. After an intensive evaluation process of both internal and external environments, we decided to pivot our social enterprises to align more closely with our mission. To that end, we are announcing that our resources and efforts will be focused solely on Joshua Catering, and we will be closing our Joshua Thrift stores by Saturday, July 16, 2022.
We look forward with great anticipation to opening the doors of our new Australian campus in early 2023, which will feature a larger Joshua Catering kitchen and Café Joshua. These two entities will serve as the focus for job training and culinary skills as well as engagement with those who are homeless and formerly homeless. In addition, our food program is responding to the growing needs of food insecurity in our community.
We encourage the public to donate gently used items to our partners at Goodwill, The Salvation Army, St. Mark’s, or other mission-driven thrift stores.
This transition marks the beginning of new and innovative ideas geared toward ending the cycle of homelessness for individuals and families in Palm Beach County. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of The Lord’s Place.
