Here are a few photos from this year’s Palm Beach Post’s Notables Season Preview Party at Eau Palm Beach. This annual event kicks off the Palm Beach season and gives nonprofits and their supporters a chance to mix and mingle.

Back to School




Those three little words, which strike dismay
into the heart of many a schoolchild,
don’t seem to have fazed our intrepid crew!


Here are Holy Ground’s three school-age
children, all decked out for school with
brand-new backpacks and supplies,
thanks to St Francis of Assisi
Catholic Church and Holy Ground.




And, as if to prove that our goal of generational change is really succeeding, two thirds of these children were in their school’s gifted program last year!

Holy Ground in the Media

We are so pleased that word is getting around about our mission to shelter and mentor homeless moms in Palm Beach County! Here are a few of the ways that Holy Ground has been featured in the local media:

    • Boca Magazine recently published this article about our new residential property, the Stockard Family Campus, highlighting the importance of our program.
    • Our three new board members and our new media relations volunteer were mentioned in this Palm Beach Post article, describing the wealth of experience each one brings to our organization. Welcome to the family, Athena, Laurie, Dr. Oms and Carol!
    • In August, The Boca Raton Observer printed this excerpt from an earlier Palm Beach Happening article about our grand opening.
    • WPEC Channel 12 aired a piece about the ribbon-cutting celebration at our new property! Watch the video here. Also, Palm Beach Happening posted this lovely article about the opening. (For photos of the ribbon-cutting ceremony, click here.)
    • Read all about our January luncheon and auction in this article, and see all the photos from the event here!
    • Our Vice President, Jan Kranich, was interviewed on Channel 5. She talked about our program and highlighted how we differ from other similar programs in the area.
    • Our Development and Vocational Director, Angela Wing-Allen, had previously been interviewed on Channel 5 as part of a story on the Quantum in the Community Celebration Breakfast. During the breakfast, Holy Ground received the check for a $10,000 grant from Quantum in the Community. Thank you, Quantum, for your continuing support. We would not have gotten this far without you!
    • Also at the breakfast, Holy Ground won the 2017 Quantum in the Community Media Opportunity! Thanks to this award (valued at over $2000!), we have been featured in the “Worth Knowing” segment of the Feb 9, 2018 edition of Palm Beach Society magazine. We are so grateful to Quantum for affording us this marvelous opportunity to spread the word about our program!
    • We have also been spotlighted in the Notables section of the Palm Beach Post, once again thanks to Quantum! Please read this wonderful feature article about our program.
    • The Neighborhood Post included one of our luncheon photos in a montage for their “Your Neighborhood in Pictures” feature.
    • The Palm Beach Daily News covered our Capital Campaign Cocktail Party in the Society pages. Take a look! For more photos from the event, click here.
