*** Pompano Beach *** Broward County *** Florida ***
The mission of Saint Laurence Chapel Homeless Day Shelter is to proclaim God’s love for people who are hungry and homeless by providing help and hope in a non-judgmental environment. We fulfill our mission by collaborating, developing partnerships and working with community organizations and churches across non-denominational lines in Broward, Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties.
Located next to the Broward Outreach Center (BOC), the Episcopal churches of Broward empower people who are homeless and hungry to become self-sufficient and help them to fulfill their basic needs by using a holistic approach.
