Project HOME offers several volunteer opportunities for our current and potential corporate partners. Our corporate volunteer experience includes education about homelessness and our solutions to ending and preventing street homelessness. Contact John Owens at 215-320-6199 or vcoordinator@projecthome.org to arrange an activity.

We’ll work with you to manage logistics and meet your group’s particular needs. Depending on scale of the proposed project and the time of year (busy times include: holidays/end of the calendar year) the minimum lead notice necessary to arrange a corporate volunteer event is six weeks.

Additional Opportunities

These seasonal opportunities in the 19121 community emphasize the importance of caring for our neighbors and supporting disenfranchised communities. Since 2012, Project HOME has invested resources within the 19121 community to support families, individuals, and youth in having access to affordable healthcare at the Stephen Klein Wellness Center and adult learning and youth development at the Honickman Learning Center Comcast Technology Labs.

The day's work generally commences at 9 a.m. with a light breakfast and then moves into the St. Elizabeth's neighborhood with companions and tools. Tools for this event will be provided. The morning will conclude by 11:30 a.m. If you wish to bring young volunteers, please make sure they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. The point-of-contact for this event is John Owens, who can be reached at vcoordinator@projecthome.org or 215-320-6199.

Like everyone, the Project HOME community has been greatly impacted by COVID-19. Residents with underlying medical conditions have been sheltering in place since March, dedicated frontline staff have been working long, exhausting hours throughout the crisis, and our entire team continues to work hard to ensure our entire community’s health, wellness, and safety. Now is a chance to stand with them and show your solidarity by writing a “Note of Hope” to someone in the Project HOME community. 

We invite you to download the PDF and follow the instructions on how to send a positive word to a Project HOME community member who could use a bit of good news in the mail. Thank you so much for sharing a note of hope! 

After you have written your encouraging words, (or expressed yourself in original artwork), please mail your Note of Hope to:
