15 churches and synagogues in south PBC have formed a Family Promise network to help homeless families Especially see our segment on CBS Channel 12.

The governmental and service agencies that serve the homeless in Palm Beach County having been working on a 10 year plan to "eliminate homelessness". This is a requirement for receiving federal funding for homeless programs. Those working on the 10 year plan have determined that shelters should be created in three locations in PBC.......

The Homeless Coalition of PBC held a workshop ...... and one of the conclusions of those assembled is that special effort should be made to create more effort in faith communities to help the homeless. Faith in Action of Palm Beach County has been created to help do that.
