Did you know that in 2019 Holy Ground partnered with City House (Delray Beach) to begin development of a pilot program for Palm Beach County that will explore optimal methods of addressing adverse childhood experiences?
Did you know that in 2019 Holy Ground co-hosted two action and advocacy workshops on the lack of affordable housing in Palm Beach County? We are deeply invested in this issue since our clients, when they graduate, join the large population of low-income families searching — often in vain — for safe housing they can afford.
And these initiatives are in addition to our on-going mission of sheltering and mentoring young homeless moms and their children. In 2019 alone, we provided our clients over 1000 hours of mentoring and professional counseling — all while keeping our administrative costs to less than 25%.
For more about what we accomplished in 2019, please take a look at our 2019 impact report (if you were able to attend our luncheon, you already have a copy!):
For comparison, here’s our report from 2016. Look how much we’ve grown in just three years!
During that time, we ran a successful capital campaign to purchase our first residential property, which we opened in the spring of 2018 and paid off in full in the spring of 2019, thanks to our generous grantors!
