Thanks to your marvelous generosity, we raised almost $3000 during the Great Give — one of our best totals ever!
And that’s not all — that figure doesn’t include the supplemental dollars from the bonus pool, or the proceeds from our two partner restaurants, Berry Fresh Café and Relish & More. Once we have the final total, we’ll let you know.
Please know we are so very grateful for your support!

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. Thank you so much for your generosity!
Why we so strongly believe in Holy Ground’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.
