The Lord’s Place will host its 14th Annual Ending Homelessness Breakfast, Clearing the Way, on Thursday, November 18, 2021. \ \ The Lord’s Place is clearing the way for its clients, removing obstacles in their paths to lead them to housing, employment, and restoration of dignity and a new life. The Lord’s Place is clearing the way for building a new client-services center that will bring staff under one roof and expand services to ensure more individuals and families get home for good. The Lord’s Place is clearing the way for a new tomorrow after the pandemic. \ \ The hybrid event will take place both in-person at the Kravis Center Cohen Pavilion and live-streamed virtually. Chaired by Kurt Gehring, chief executive officer of Gehring Group | Bentek, the impactful breakfast will feature thematic speeches and real-life stories to provide attendees with a deep understanding of The Lord’s Place mission in action. Three awards--Ending Homelessness, Servant Leader, and Unsung Hero--will be presented to three individuals in our community who are catalysts for positive change in the agency’s services to eradicate homelessness.\ \ The proceeds from this event support The Lord’s Place mission to break the cycle of homelessness for men, women, and children in Palm Beach County, FL, through innovative, compassionate and effective services. Programs and services include: providing supportive and graduate housing at ten locations; operating social enterprises including three Joshua Thrift Stores, Joshua Catering, and Joshua Treasures; providing job training and placement services, clinical and care coordination, and community engagement services; and a highly-successful reentry program helping men and women transitioning from incarceration. \ \ Event sponsors to date include: GL Homes, Ann Brown, Gehring Group, Oxbow, OSC Webco, Diana Barrett and Bob Vila, Brinkley Morgan Attorneys at Law, Marie and Ted Deckert, Evelyn & Arthur, Lena and Bob Katzen, Ellen and Robert Kaufmann,
