William H. Mann Place for Men
In 2018, the Men’s Campus, which houses 50 men who were formerly homeless, was named in honor of a very generous gift from Anna Mann, of Palm Beach, in memory of her late husband William Mann. This gift allowed for renovations, as well as the support of ongoing services at the campus, including mental health, substance disorder, reentry and employment.
“I am so very pleased to be able to make this donation that will have such a significant impact on the work of The Lord’s Place. I am extremely touched by the important work that The Lord’s Place does, and I hope that this gift will help these men for years to come,” commented Mrs. Mann.
This campus, located in Boynton Beach, is comprised of two supportive housing programs, Joshua House long-term supportive housing program and the Recovery Center short-term housing program.
Together, the programs offer a seamless continuum of housing services for homeless men. The Recovery Center serves those who have struggled with substance abuse and/or chronic homelessness, as well as ex-offenders who have become homeless after being released from incarceration. Joshua House serves residents who have demonstrated a commitment to personal growth and success and are considered leaders on the campus.
Each resident is connected to a life coach that helps them develop and implement a plan to address their needs. Men have the opportunity to focus on their future and work on personal growth through classes, meetings, and volunteer opportunities. Participation in The Lord’s Place Job Training and Employment Services Program, which provides classroom-based job skills training, supervised transitional work experience opportunities and assistance in searching for employment, is strongly encouraged.
