What does Com­mu­nity Part­ners do?

Home to Hous­ing Part­ner­ship Inc. and Par­en­tChild Cen­ter, Com­mu­nity Part­ners has been serv­ing Palm Beach County for more than 30 years. The holis­tic ap­proach to fam­ily and com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment ef­fec­tively blends hous­ing, com­mu­nity and men­tal health ser­vices to ful­fill the mis­sion of chang­ing the odds. They work with Palm Beach County res­i­dents to build skills to achieve self-suf­fi­ciency, sta­bil­ity and suc­cess. How does your agency ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity?

Com­mu­nity Part­ners col­lab­o­rates with res­i­dents. We h o n o r their voices and work with them to en­act tan­gi­ble, long-last­ing and pos­i­tive change in their lives and the lives of their chil­dren. What i s your a ge ncy’s fo­cus for the fu­ture?

Palm Beach County is in the midst of an af­ford­able hous­ing cri­sis and Com­mu­nit y Part­ners’ ob­jec­tive is to ad­dress the chal­lenges of af­ford­able and sus­tain­able hous­ing in re­la­tion to our over­ar­ch­ing mis­sion of chang­ing theodds for fam­i­lies fac­ing ad­ver­sit y. We want Palm Beach Count y res­i­dents to hear about the tire­less ef­forts of our or­ga­ni­za­tion and to know that these ser­vices are avail­able to all who may need them. How can the com­mu­nity help?

By join­ing us on our mis­sion through mon­e­tary do­na­tions, do­na­tions of gen­tlyused goods or vol­un­teer ef­forts.
