Hub of Hope

From CBS 3

The underground hub for Center City’s homeless is in limbo, just as Philadelphia gets hit with its first code blue temperatures of the year.

 

From NBC 10

On any given night, about a third of Center City's homeless -- about 100 people -- sleep in the concourse under Philadelphia's Suburban Station. Project HOME's "cafe" -- a type of drop-in services center -- has operated there over the last three winters.

 

From the Los Angeles Times:

So a Jesuit priest and a Sister of Mercy nun walked into Homegirl Cafe, and for a moment, it seemed that anything was possible, up to and including world peace.

 

From the Philadelphia Inquirer

No doubt about it, Sister Mary Scullion is a warrior. But the Inquirer's 2011 Citizen of the Year, who received the award Wednesday, admits that the battle has been made more difficult by governments shrinking their budgets.

 

From the Philadelphia Inquirer

The Occupy movement arrived in Philadelphia in October, taking over Dilworth Plaza for nearly eight weeks and airing grievances about unemployment, homelessness, and more. But as with other Occupiers around the country, their message was muddied: It never became clear what the protesters wanted or how they would get it.
