Update, Thursday, Oct. 7, 2015 Palmetto Place is very fortunate to have fared well through the flooding. We’ve had water damage to our office and we, like many others, are on a boil water advisory, which could last for some time. We are so grateful to everyone who has provided food and water, plus activities for all of our kids.
Our fundraisers will go on as scheduled and we hope you will continue to support us as we care for kids in need. Please see our events page for details. If you'd like to make a donation, please visit our donation page.
Thank you again for all you’ve done to support us through this situation.

So many of you have checked on us through email, Facebook and Twitter and we are so appreciative to have such great friends! We are safe and dry. We have water and power. Most importantly, we have amazing houseparents who have weathered the storm with our kids - all of whom have been very patient. We stocked the house with food on Friday to help out this weekend. Our houseparents cooked a huge lunch and dinner Sunday and we just keep going.
At this moment, we do not have any specific needs but thanks to those of you who have reached out! We'll keep you posted if anything changes and if we have needs.
We're very grateful to all of the emergency personnel who are working so hard to put our city back together.
