"When you stick around positive people, you start being positive" - Dean, a Project HOME Alumni shares what has kept him positive and productive while at Project HOME. See the rest of the clip to catch his full story.

We recently completed production of our inspiring new video, Coming HOME, and we hope it conveys our shared conviction that Philadelphia can be the first major city to end chronic street homelessness and that it serves as a source of inspiration for you. Happy watching!

Michelle, former resident and full-time employee of Project HOME, shares her journey from Homelessness to HOPE. Formerly homeless for decades, Michelle discovered Project HOME through the Hub of Hope where she went from volunteer to full-time employee at The Hub of Hope.

 

From Philly Voice:

Hub for Hope, a service center for Philadelphia’s homeless population, opened Tuesday in Suburban Station.

 

From CBS Philly:

It was a groundbreaking advance in Philadelphia’s response to homelessness Tuesday as officials cut the ribbon on the new Hub of Hope.

The sparkling new facility in Suburban Station is the culmination of years of work by homeless advocates, city officials and SEPTA.

 

From WHYY:

Philadelphia’s new day center for the homeless opens its doors Wednesday, but it’ll be opening in an unusual location — underground.

 

From 6ABC:

Hub of Hope is ready to unveil a major upgrade to an 11,000 square foot facility in SEPTA's Center City subway concourse.

Project HOME worked with the City of Philadelphia and SEPTA to create this first of its kind facility.

It is not a shelter, but rather a way to connect the city's homeless to other services.

 

From the Philadelphia Inquirer

Guiding chronically homeless people to the assistance they need is a delicate process, said those who work with the city’s indigent, and requires giving people with nowhere to go a place to feel welcome.
