Our virtual event this year celebrated
10 years of providing a home and hope
to young homeless moms and their children in Palm Beach County.
In addition to a silent auction,
our event included a special guest appearance
by bestselling author, award-winning playwright, and filmmaker
Adriana Trigiani, who offered a unique opportunity for our live auction:
the ability to name a character in her next novel!
What a wonderful way to honor someone in your life!

Faith in Action’s 2nd Annual Interfaith
Affordable Housing Action Workshop
Thank you to all who attended this important virtual event!
Holy Ground strongly supports this important initiative on behalf of our clients, most of whom will need affordable housing once they complete our program. To learn more about the critical lack of affordable housing in Palm Beach County, please take a look at this article on Faith in Action’s first Interfaith Affordable Housing Action Workshop. It highlights the disparity in Palm Beach County between the incomes of those who need affordable housing and the median income level used to set costs for affordable housing.
To get involved in the movement, please visit Faith in Action’s Facebook page.
Join the movement @faithinactionpbc to ensure safe and affordable housing for all!
