About the Event

Each month in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast there are dozens of children being removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, homelessness, abandonment, exploitation, and trafficking. Place of Hope is acting today to fight this egregious crime plaguing our communities. 

We invite you to partner with us in supporting the at risk children and youth in our community by donating an auction item to Place of Hope’s Inaugural Anti-Human Trafficking Luncheon. By partnering with us in this major event of over 400 participants and sponsor, you are providing safety, stability, and hope to the children, youth, and families we serve daily.

About Place of Hope

Place of Hope is the largest, most diverse, faith-based, state licensed children and families organization focused on providing programs and services to end the cycles of abuse, neglect, homelessness and human trafficking in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast. Since opening our doors in 2001, we have provided support to over 25,000 children, youth and families in need. Our goal is to help those we serve find healing and restoration, which leads to a successful future. Through this event, we are raising critical funds to care for traumatized children, youth and families throughout our region with excellence.
