women stay­ing at the Sen­a­tor Philip D. Lewis Cen­ter. It not only nour­ishes the guests, who are seek­ing to change their lives, but also cre­ates aware­ness about home­less is­sues and in­creases the com­mu­nity’s in­ter­ac­tion with the cen­ter. Since it be­gan Break­ing Bread, Break­ing Bar­ri­ers has pro­vided 29,610 meals!

A na­tional pro­gram that brings to­gether com­mu­nity vol­un­teers, gov­ern­ment agen­cies, non­prof­its, busi­nesses, ser­vice providers, faith or­ga­ni­za­tions, and the pri­vate sec­tor to serve the home­less. The out­reach event gath­ers ser­vice providers un­der one roof for one day to al­low those who are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing home­less­ness to have ac­cess to help in a sin­gle lo­ca­tion. The Home­less Coali­tion spon­sors Project Home­less Con­nect quar­terly in var­i­ous lo­ca­tions around Palm Beach County.

This is the col­lec­tion point for do­na­tions and re­sources. It also of­fers op­por­tu­ni­ties for vol­un­teers. Fam­i­lies of in­di­vid­u­als seek­ing help at the Lewis Cen­ter can get what they need to start over.

The Home­less Coali­tion co­or­di­nates vol­un­teer ser­vices at the Sen­a­tor Philip D. Lewis Cen­ter. We also re­cruit vol­un­teers for out­reach, fundrais­ing and ad­min­is­tra­tive help.
