Palm Beach County held a ribbon cutting for its homeless resource center on Monday, June 25, marking the first time that the county’s homeless have had a single place to go for shelter, medical care, job training and other social services. The Senator Philip D. Lewis Center is a partnership between the county and nonprofits working with the homeless; and $8.5 million in federal grant money.
Onsite partner providers include:

The facility will begin service July 2, 2012 and will strive to end homelessness in 10 years.
