Hope Begins with a Home

Help Them Come Home

Far too many children in Palm Beach County have no idea what “home” is. They keep their belongings in trash bags and shuffle between shelters, low-budget motels, short-term rentals, and even the family car for a few nights’ sleep. They change schools and miss classes, with no solid foundation for their education. Their experiences as children give them limited opportunities to rise above the hand they have been dealt.

YOU have the power to break this cycle. By supporting Julian Place, you are equipping Adopt-A-Family to provide affordable housing and hope to local families who need a safe place to call home.

Adopt-A-Family launched a capital campaign in 2017 to raise $6,600,000 for Julian Place. The total includes the construction of 14 units of housing and a community center as well all program operating expenses through 2025.

The agency raised over $5,500,000 by 2021. A generous donor stepped forward with a $500,000 match opportunity to help the agency finish the campaign. Thanks to an outpouring of support from our donors, Adopt-A-Family met the match in August 2022 to finish the campaign!

Any donations made toward Julian Place will be set aside for the program’s future operating expenses. Your gift will support the long-term sustainability of the program and the families who call Julian Place home.

THE FINAL $500,000: WE DID IT!
