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. Since 2011, the Middleton Partnership has been the catalyst for unprecedented success in the effort to end chronic street homelessness in Philadelphia. Thanks to the Partnership, there will be more homes for vulnerable people living on the streets, with four residences already opened (James Widener Ray Homes, JBJ Soul Homes, Francis House of Peace, Ruth Williams House) to help persons experiencing homelessness and poverty in Philadelphia realize their full potential as fellow citizens and members of our community.
Project HOME has developed 894 units of affordable and supportive housing for persons who have experienced homelessness and low-income persons at-risk of homelessness in Philadelphia; there are an additional 42 units under construction, 40 units in predevelopment and 62 units in the pipeline. Our goal is to complete 1,000 total units of affordable housing in the near future.
