FISCAL YEAR 2019 ANNUAL REPORT
One of the deepest yearnings of all persons is for home. It is a yearning that is at the heart of what it means to be human.
Over the past 30 years, we at Project HOME have learned many lessons about the meaning of home. Home is more than four walls. Home is a place of grounding, from which we can develop a secure sense of self and from which we can grow, develop our gifts, and achieve our fullest potential.
Home is a sanctuary where we can come to know ourselves in our deepest, most intimate depths. Home is also a place of dignity—it is the place we belong, and therefore it expresses a fundamental truth of our humanity: that we belong, that we deserve to belong.
Through the experience of home, we come to recognize that what unites us is far greater than what divides us. Which is why we assert, as the core vision of Project HOME, “None of us are home until all of us are home.”
It is this shared vision of home that has made possible the success of Project HOME over these past three decades. We rightly celebrate nearly 900 units of housing, marvelous education and wellness centers, the thousands of lives transformed, and the community renewal we experience in North Philadelphia. But we also give thanks for an amazing community of people who, from all walks of life and all parts of society, have come together to discover our common human bonds and to work together toward a more just and compassionate society.
We will continue our common journey home. And that means we will keep reaching out to those who are still without home. We will continue to share our energies and talents, our vision and our hope, so that the circle of home expands, and as it does, we all become more fully human.
With warmest gratitude,
