This is a first attempt to identify all the agencies, churches, and service providers who provide overnight shelter for homeless people in Palm Beach County. At present this list has redundancy and lacks important information about how many beds, terms for their use, and what sorts of homeless people they serve. If we can make this an accurate and complete list, it will be a big help for someone who wants to understand the supply side of our opportunities for providing shelter for the homeless in Palm Beach County. Please send corrections to Carl House and please include the complete URL from the address line of your browser. For those pages that should be eliminated because they are redundant or because the organization does not provide shelter, please tell me. Also, please tell me about organizations that should be on the list and are not. Lots of the information is in the Continuum of Care document, but we have the ability to make this list more complete and more easily searched than the CoC document.
