A Little History
The Lord’s Place has served the homeless in Palm Beach County for more than three decades. In 1979, founder Brother Joe Ranieri slept in a dumpster for 30 days to raise awareness and funds to open the agency’s first homeless shelter. Since then, we have continued to evolve as an agency, keeping the needs of our clients in sharp focus and preserving the integrity of our mission.
