A STATEMENT FROM THE PROJECT HOME COMMUNITY IN THE WAKE OF THE NATIONAL ELECTION

This remarkable poem was written by one of our residents who prefers to remain anonymous.

 

If I Never

Music has always been a core part of Paul Dunnaville’s life. So has a deep passion to help people, especially youth. So when he was called about an opening at Project HOME’s Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs (HLCCTL) as a part-time music instructor, he couldn’t say no.

For years, Paul had been splitting his time between his music production company and different nonprofit stints working with troubled youth or persons with behavioral health issues. The opportunity to work with Project HOME’s young people allowed his gifts to flourish.

It might have appeared as an “out-of-sight-out-of-mind” strategy to hide the City’s dark side during the Democratic National Convention.  But in fact, when the City asked Project HOME to open a special, short-term “respite” for people who were homeless on the streets of Center City, it was part of a strategic initiative designed to promote real solutions.

We are eagerly looking forward to tomorrow night, when the latest Project HOME art show open.  Our “Artists For All Season” has its grand opening and reception on Wednesday, October 26, 6:00 – 8:00 pm, at Drexel University’s URBN Center, 3501 Market Street.  This show is a partnership with Drexel University, and will feature drawings, painting, and photos by several Project HOME artists who have been part of our Art Program.

Mobilize Voters with the Vote For Homes Coalition!

Join Vote For Homes in our nonpartisan effort to mobilize voters by supporting the voting rights of people who are low-income, homeless, living with disabilities, or formerly incarcerated.

We need volunteers to help us call voters and remind them about the election, and to provide a limited number of rides for voters to the polls on Election Day, November 8th.

Please let us know your availability for training and to volunteer before and on Election Day.

Our sincere thanks to all of the donors, advocates, volunteers, and myriad other partners who have joined with us to end homelessness and alleviate poverty in Philadelphia!
