The Hub of Hope

Engagement Center
  • The Hub of Hope
16th St. & JFK Blvd.
Philadelphia, PA 19102


For six winters, the Hub of Hope has served as a walk-in engagement center located in the concourses under Two Penn Center in Suburban Station. Since 2012, the Hub has had over 36,000 visits and facilitated 1,429 placements into shelter, treatment programs, and housing around the city. Now, through a partnership between SEPTA, the City of Philadelphia, and Project HOME, the Hub of Hope has expanded into a permanent location in Suburban Station to offer year-round services.

The new Hub of Hope offers a safe place where people can enjoy a warm cup of coffee, take a shower and wash laundry, and speak to peers or case managers to begin the process of finding a permanent home. It creates even greater opportunities to connect individuals experiencing homelessness to treatment, medical care and ultimately stable, supportive housing.

The Hub of Hope is a partnership between the City of Philadelphia, SEPTA, and Project HOME.


Open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
