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!

Advancing on the Path

Nancy Jones’ excitement is infectious. You feel it immediately when you talk with her.

And she has reason to be excited. Tomorrow, she heads out to Erie, Pennsylvania—her first time she will live away from her North Philadelphia home—to begin her college career at Mercyhurst University.

Several artists from the Project HOME community will join the elite company of Rembrandt, Monet, and Picasso when they have their work on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Opening today at the Museum is the “Bridges Exhibit,” which features the artwork of seven Project HOME residents, staff, and volunteers.

Beauty and Love

Kat Delancey, who originally came as a guest, has volunteered at Project HOME’s Hub of Hope for the past three years.  Here are some of Kat's reflections from this past winter’s Hub.
