Holy Ground is thrilled to announce
the successful purchase of our new campus!

We are now the proud owners of two small apartment buildings in West Palm Beach. We’re already in the process of renovating them, and we expect to open our new home to our young families this spring.

This would not have been possible without the support of many individuals and organizations, chief among them The Mary Alice Fortin Foundation, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and the Cathleen McFarlane Foundation.

Please come help us celebrate our new adventure (and raise funds for the renovations) at our annual “A Shower for Shelter” Luncheon and Auction on January 21, 2018, from 11:30AM – 2:00PM at the Kravis Center. Click here for more info.

Hope to see you there! Meanwhile, a Happy New Building to all!

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.
