About Café JoshuaStarted in 1995, Café Joshua was a place for homeless people in West Palm Beach to receive a hot, restaurant-style meal. In 2000, the organization merged with The Lord's Place, which provides comprehensive case management, job training and supportive housing, as well as a thrift store. The merger allowed Café Joshua to expand into a corporate catering business that brings revenues back to the nonprofit. The agency serves an average of 560 homeless men, women and children every month. For more information, visit www.thelordsplace.org.
