Housing and Street Outreach
A Continuum of Care
Project HOME has developed a proven and effective program to assist persons in overcoming chronic homelessness. This "continuum of care" is carefully designed to deal with the complex issues of persons with special needs such as mental illness and addiction. The continuum consists of street outreach, a range of supportive housing from entry-level to permanent housing, and comprehensive services, including health care, education and employment.
If you see a homeless person living on the streets, please call our
Homeless Outreach Hotline at
If you are client in need of services, please call
Our Outreach Teams develop trusting relationships with homeless individuals who have severe mental illnesses or substance addiction.
The Women's Emergency Respite Center serves a particularly vulnerable population: women with a long history of street homelessness, many of whom are incompatible or resistant to city-run shelter services.
Project HOME's supportive housing programs enable each person to break the cycle of homelessness, move toward self-sufficiency and achieve his or her fullest potential.
Project HOME’s alumni group provides residents the opportunity to stay connected to our community even after moving out of our supportive housing programs.
Project HOME has developed an eleven-story building in Rittenhouse Square and a four-story building in the Tioga neighborhood to help address the gap in Philadelphia's affordable housing inventory.
