25th Anniversary

Our friends from FlyBy Aerial Productions last year captured this incredible aerial footage of our sites (and sites to be!) with their drone for our 25th anniversary. It was shown at the April 2014 celebration, and footage from the celebration and other anniversary goodies can be found at the collection here.

 

Last month, a group of residents, alumni, staff, and friends of Project HOME gathered at our Kate’s Place residence for Café 25, one in a series of nights of storytelling that are being held throughout 2014 to mark our 25th Anniversary year. Several residents shared their personal stories, and the stories were powerful, indeed.

During our 25th anniversary this year, we are republishing stories from our past. Roy Maddrey was a resident of St. Elizabeth’s Recovery Residence and later The Crossing, Project HOME’s former transitional residence in West Philadelphia.

On Friday, June 20, several hundred residents, alumni, volunteers, and current or former staff flooded two blocks of Fairmount Avenue for “A Taste of HOME,” our festive 25th Anniversary community celebration. Adults and youth enjoyed great food, music and dancing, art projects – and the gratification of all being part of an amazing quarter century of this mission of ending homelessness.

Roots and Branches: Reflections from Sister Mary

As I recall the cramped quarters of that patchwork first shelter in the locker room of a vacant recreation center a quarter century ago, I can hardly believe all that has happened.

A selection of images from our recent 25th Anniversary Gala.

We are Proud to present the first public performance of the Project HOME choir!

A very special thanks to Paul Rardin, director of choral activities at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance, for lending his talents!
