Housing & Community Resources

PERC is committed to connecting students at Palm Beach State College to local resources that support students facing homelessness. We believe our students should be focused on academic success and excellence and not on whether they have a place to call home.

The Lewis Center

The Senator Philip D. Lewis Center opened in July 2012 as Palm Beach County’s first homeless resource center. Having a partnership of homeless service providers in one location allows the Lewis Center to act as a central point of access for individuals and families seeking to end their homelessness. Here people get connected with supportive services and housing to restore them to self-sufficiency.
