About Kate Grangard

Safety. A young man at the Family Campus at the Lord's Place drew this picture (my profile picture) and said that what the Lord's Place meant for him - was SAFETY.   How many men, women, and children are homeless each day, and each night, with no where to go, and no program to help them to break the cycle in which they find themselves - no place to be safe?  For my family, SleepOut is an annual commitment to support the programs of the Lord's Place - a life changing, innovative, top rated organization that serves this vulnerable population.  One thing I have learned over my 6 years on the board of The Lord's Place is that homelessness is a downward cyclone, but we can make a difference in the lives of this population. Once a person finds themselves without the stability of a home; the loss of family, schooling, food, work, relationships, transportation, and peace of mind quickly follow.  They lose HOPE. And there is no prejudice and there is no stereotype of the face of the homeless.  They are brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, aunts, uncles, of all nationalities, genders, and come to us from all different backgrounds. They vary, and they are many.  And they need what the Lords Place gives them-opportunity, love, and HOPE. Please support me as I raise funds to support the life-changing programs of the Lords Place so that we may help these community members and save lives. 

The Lord’s Place is a leading agency in Palm Beach County dedicated to ending homelessness once and for all.
