Fiscal Year 2019 Annual Report

FISCAL YEAR 2019 ANNUAL REPORT

Dear Friends,
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,

Our Finances

Our Mission
THE VISION OF PROJECT HOME
None of us are home until all of us are home.®

THE MISSION OF PROJECT HOME
The mission of the Project HOME community is to empower adults, children, and families to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, to alleviate the underlying causes of poverty, and to enable all of us to attain our fullest potential as individuals and as members of the broader society.  We strive to create a safe and respectful environment where we support each other in our struggles for self-esteem, recovery, and the confidence to move toward self-actualization.
Project HOME achieves its mission through a continuum of services comprised of street outreach, a range of supportive housing, and comprehensive services. We address the root causes of homelessness through neighborhood-based affordable housing, economic development, and environmental enhancement programs, as well as through providing access to employment opportunities; adult and youth education; and health care.
Project HOME is committed to social and political advocacy.  An integral part of our work is education about the realities of homelessness and poverty and vigorous advocacy on behalf of and with homeless and low-income persons for more just and humane public policies.
Project HOME is committed to nurturing a spirit of community among persons from all walks of life, all of whom have a role to play in making this a more just and compassionate society.

THE VALUES OF PROJECT HOME
The work of Project HOME is rooted in our strong spiritual conviction of the dignity of each person.
We believe that all persons are entitled to decent, affordable housing and access to quality education, employment, and health care.
We believe in the transformational power of building relationships and community as the ultimate answer to the degradation of homelessness and poverty.
We believe that working to end homelessness and poverty enhances the quality of life for everyone in our community.
We believe that the critical resources entrusted to us to achieve our mission must be managed honorably and professionally.
