JBJ Soul Homes

Project HOME's supportive housing programs offer permanent, subsidized housing for individuals and families who had been homeless. Most residents come to Project HOME from a safe haven, a shelter or from the streets.

Project HOME also offers affordable housing based on income eligibility.

JBJ Soul Homes is a 55-unit, permanent supportive housing residence for adults. There are subsidized and affordable efficiency apartments, including units dedicated for young adults.  All subsidized units are fully furnished.

Accessible units including physical, hearing and visual are available. 

Residents are offered on-site service coordination and Personal Recovery Services. Residents are encouraged to participate in recovery-oriented activities that lead to personal growth, well-being, and self-sufficiency.

Project HOME also offers health care, education and employment opportunities and social enterprise. Covenant House provides services for the young adults.

With a transformational leadership gift from Leigh and John Middleton, Project HOME created a public/private initiative to end and prevent chronic street homelessness in Philadelphia. MPOWER comprises visionary leaders who have joined with Leigh and John Middleton to ensure that together we realize this bold goal. 810 Arch Street will be the fourth Middleton Partnership project.

Since 2011, Project HOME and its community partners have created a new strategic and collaborative approach to provide housing, healthcare, education, and employment. Under Project HOME’s lead, MPOWER has identified the longest-term and most vulnerable people living on the streets and developed a comprehensive program of permanent housing (with services designed to break the cycle of homelessness) and also the necessary capacity to prevent chronic street homelessness in the future.

In addition, MPOWER will pilot evidence-based practices in drug- and alcohol-free housing coupled with employment, leading to greater economic independence for people struggling with addiction and chronic street homelessness. To prevent future homelessness, MPOWER will create new permanent supportive housing with strong education and employment opportunities targeted to youth aging out of foster care or who are experiencing homelessness.

The financial leverage and collaborative impact of MPOWER allows Project HOME to greatly expand its housing and services, including building six new residential programs with a total of 500 additional housing units – doubling overall housing capacity – and a new wellness center offering integrated health care services including primary, behavioral health, and dental care, together with wellness programs. Not only does MPOWER help Project HOME carry out its mission of ending homelessness, it generates economic and fiscal impacts throughout the City of Philadelphia and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

On a daily basis, we witness the tremendous strength and courage of men and women who have overcome homelessness.  And daily, we experience what happens when a community with a shared vision comes together – what Jon Bon Jovi calls “The Power of We.” Together, we can seize this opportunity and make the ambitious hope of ending chronic street homelessness in Philadelphia a reality. We invite every sector of society to join us in this hope – and help make Philadelphia the first major City in our nation to end and prevent chronic street homelessness.
