Help for the Bahamas — UPDATE

We were spared. The Bahamas were not. “There, but for the grace of God…”

Here’s how you can help. Thank you to Monique Taylor-Lincoln, Holy Ground’s psychotherapist, who has family in the Bahamas, for organizing this effort.

UPDATE: Please see this expanded list of needed items. Drop-off location remains the same as for the original list.

If you are unable to obtain any of these items, please share this information with others who may be able to.

Thank you!!

Thank you to all who attended our Symposium on
Fair and Affordable Housing!

Very special thanks to our keynote speaker, Avery Friedman, to West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James, and to our panelists: James Green, Director of Palm Beach County Community Services; Omari Hardy, City Commissioner of Lake Worth Beach; and Emily Gorman, Director of Administration for Housing Programs at Adopt-a-Family.

Holy Ground PBC was honored that these distinguished guests took time out of their incredibly busy days to lend their voices and their support to the symposium’s vision of fair and affordable housing for all! We were thrilled by the level of interest and energy shown by all of you, our guests, and we look forward to partnering with you as we unite our voices in advocacy and action.

Please don’t forget that now is the time to send letters to the Florida Legislature to urge them to use the Sadowski funds for affordable housing. If you want electronic copies of the letters that were in your information packets, those are available here. Photos from the event will be available soon.

We are greatly indebted to the sponsors of this event:

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.
