Your Gift to Gratitude House Saves Lives, Gives Hope, Restores Families, and Builds Community.


Gratitude House is serving more women and children than ever before and our needs continue to grow. Since 2007, we have been upgrading our facilities to create the best possible environment for the clients in our care to flourish; we do this because Gratitude House serves as a place of hope for the women in our programs. We are passionate to end the cycles of poverty, abuse, homelessness and substance abuse by providing a comfortable home where women can learn to become happy, healthy, self-reliant and substance free. Working with our exceptional staff, and through your support, these women create a future for themselves and their children.

We know that the greatest barrier to women seeking treatment services is the availability of childcare, and in the summer of 2024, we will be launching the Mandel-Palagye Childcare Center and Gentithes Nursery at Gratitude House to serve up to 48 children ages 0-2.

In supporting the Mandel-Palagye Childcare Center and Gentithes Nursery at Gratitude House, you are supporting the only not for profit substance abuse treatment facility in Palm Beach County that allows mothers and their infants and toddlers to be in treatment together while these families progress on the path to recovery.

We want to give a special thanks to Keith & Stacy Mandel-Palagye and to Tom & Lynn Gentithes for generously providing the cornerstone gifts to launch the new childcare center. However, we still need your help to bring this dream to fruition. By joining Keith & Stacy and Tom &Lynn in providing support for our Childcare Center, you will create a permanent legacy of hope for the children and families of Gratitude House.
