From the Philadelphia Daily News

THE MEN with the bad legs - the one in the rickety wheelchair and the one with the cane that looks as if it might snap under his weight - are the first to be counted.

Reporter's Notebook: Counting the homeless in West Philadelphia

From The Daily Pennsylvanian

Typically when I see homeless people asking for money in the Penn area, I ignore them. But on Wednesday night, I sought them out.

Homeless will soon have Hub of Hope again in Philly's Suburban Station

From Newsworks

People who are homeless in Philadelphia will soon have a place to go in Philadelphia's Suburban Station.

"Hub for Hope," Project Home's drop-in homeless center in Suburban Station is expected to open next week in its old storefront near the 15th Street entrance. For the last few winters, Project Home has set up Hub of Hope in the space as a walk-in services center.

THE HUB OF HOPE is headed back home.

After Project HOME's seasonal social-services center for the homeless was inexplicably shut out of its old space inside Suburban Station, it was told that it could return.

Talk about a welcome about-face.

It has been two weeks since Hub of Hope found themselves without a venue to run their mobile homeless services center. After being booted from Suburban Station and scrambling to find a new space in the same vicinity, Project HOME proudly announced today that the Hub will reopen for the rest of the winter at its first location beneath 2 Penn Center.

The bitterly cold weather is especially dangerous for the homeless and a local organization is working extra hard to ensure they have a warm place to stay.

At just after 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, the temperature read 18 degrees.

The wind was howling outside of White Rock Baptist Church at 53rd and Chestnut streets where a homeless woman sat.

 

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.”
