Sharing our bread with the hungry, sheltering the oppressed and the homeless, clothing the naked when you see them, and not turning your back on your own.       – Isaiah 58:7

We love you, Mimi

mimi_hearts-2 Mimi Scholl, one of our most loving and long-time volunteers, went to her own forever home on August 29, after a brief hospitalization. Mimi threw her heart and soul into helping Holy Ground and our clients, especially our littlest ones. Above, she plays joyfully at our annual picnic with a small member of our Holy Ground family.

Mimi’s family, which includes her sister, Joan Anderson, another of our loyal and long-time volunteers, asks that donations in Mimi’s memory be made to Holy Ground Shelter for Homeless, Inc.,
200 W 20th St, Riviera Beach FL 33404.

Macy’s Shop for a Cause event in 2012.

Thank you, Mimi, for the love you gave to our Holy Ground family. Although we miss you, the joy you brought us
remains in our hearts.

shop_for_a_cause_logoHoly Ground enjoyed another successful Shop for a Cause day, thanks to Macy’s and to all who staffed our table there, all who sold or bought Savings Passes, and all who shopped for Holy Ground’s cause on August 27! We’re already looking forward to next year!

Why we so strongly believe in Holy Ground Shelter’s long-term, independent living model:

This 5-minute video depicts a theory of change from the Frontiers of Innovation community for achieving breakthrough outcomes for vulnerable children and families. It describes the need to focus on building the capabilities of caregivers and strengthening the communities that together form the environment of relationships essential to children’s lifelong learning, health, and behavior.
