Place of Hope provides traditional faith-based, family-style foster care, with placement priority given to sibling groups and other special needs (“hard to place”) foster children in need of consistent, structured long-term care. The organization provides family cottages located within a safe, serene, gated neighborhood in Palm Beach Gardens. Although individual circumstances and the courts determine the precise length of stay for each child, Place of Hope strives to provide a stable and loving family home for children until they can either attain permanency (family reunification or adoption) or are of age to live independently.
Place of Hope’s Boca Raton location, The Leighan and David Rinker Campus, is under massive renovation and expansion.
Construction is complete on all the original buildings; however, ground has broken on the Lane Education and Enrichment Center, which will provide comprehensive enrichment programs including art, music and independent living skills training for our youths. This center will also provide space for mentoring, tutoring, educational services, visitation and additional administrative office space. They are in serious need of building materials, furnishings, etc. and that’s where Designing Spaces’ Spaces of Hope comes in.
In conjunction with generous partners, Spaces of Hope is giving back to this worthy cause by adapting the compound to meet the organization’s needs. Some of the construction and design tasks needed include complete buildouts of the commercial kitchen, library/community room and nursery, and building a putting green behind the facility.
