[NEWS] Plight of Phila.'s homeless recognized in Center City

 

Hundreds of people gathered at City Hall’s Dilworth Park this week to memorialize nearly 150 homeless people who died on the streets of Philadelphia this year.

“This is a solemn and sad gathering but it is also a gathering of hope,” said Sister Mary Scullion of Project Home, which helped organized the annual event. “Each and every year, more and more people are here, and more and more Philadelphians are working hard to end homelessness in our city.”
