  • Another Successful Season at the Hub of Hope

As we move into summer, we wanted to share with you some exciting outcomes from the Hub of Hope — one of our winter initiatives this frigid winter.  The detailed report can be accessed here.

  • 6500+ visits to the Hub from 1000+ unique individuals
  • 536 individuals sat down with a case manager; 258 of which had histories of long-term homelessness or other vulnerability indicators
  • 124 individuals who sat with case managers were on the Large List a priority list of pre-identified individuals with long street histories who are targeted for services. The Large List is compiled of a number of smaller priority lists from which the Hub had representation of 34 individuals from the Small List, 12 from the SEPTA List, 63 from the City’s “562” List, and 13 from the City’s “133” List
  • 330 medical visits from 178 unique individuals
  • 286 essential medical assessments and forms completed for housing, services, and benefits
  • 263 individuals placed into shelter, treatment, and other housing options around the City (151 of these individuals deemed long-term homeless/fragile)

Thank you to each and every one of you for the very important role you played to help get people access to housing, services, and care this winter.  Each winter the Hub of Hope in partnership with you has been able to serve more and more individuals thanks to your dedication, commitment, and creativity.  It is with gratitude that we reflect on a winter full of dignity, community, and transformation.
