Philadelphia outreach worker speaking to person experiencing homelessness

Street Outreach

Project HOME’s journey began on the streets of Philadelphia three decades ago with co-founders Sister Mary Scullion and Joan Dawson McConnon. Their work continues today with our outreach teams. Blending professionalism and compassion, our outreach teams carefully and skillfully make connections, develop relationships, and build trust.  

It can take months, or even years, but when someone is ready to come in, they can be part of our tried and tested HOME model where we offer housing, opportunities for employment, medical care, and education.
