History

Our History

In 2013, The Haven, Inc. donated its assets to Place of Hope so that the local child welfare system would continue to benefit from high quality services. We commenced operations as Place of Hope at The Haven, Inc. We are honored to steward and expand on The Haven’s mission and resources, which their supporters championed and entrusted to them for many years. We look forward to advancing their legacy and caring for children and youth in desperate need.

We have been blessed by our generous board member, Dr. Leighan Rinker, and her husband, for providing our campus with a new name: Place of Hope at The Leighan and David Rinker Campus! The official name was changed in early 2015.

Place of Hope also has a rich and celebrated history in Palm Beach County and is the largest provider of faith-based, family-style foster care and services for children in the dependency system, pregnant teens, victims of domestic minor sex trafficking and those who have “aged-out” of care.

We provide a full continuum of care for over 265 children and youth (newborn to age 25) on a daily basis. Through our unique family-model approach, we provide stable, loving, and nurturing environments.
