--Open Letter to All Candidates for Elective Offices--

Dear Candidates for Elected Offices Representing Philadelphia: 

On May 2, 2019 The Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs hosted a College Acceptance Day for the students who are enrolled in our College Access Program. Our College Access Program supports students from high school through to the end of college. The program uses a three-pronged approach to support college access and success: Academics, Entrepreneurship and Career Exploration.

Our mission at Project HOME is "None of us are home until all of us home." For me, as a Behavioral Health Consultant at Stephen Klein Wellness Center, the destination "home" is as much a safe place where we live, as it is a safe place within ourselves - a safety rooted in mental wellness.

Many situations can disrupt our mental health, which can cause strong feelings of anxiety, confusion, fear, sadness, or stress. Even good or wanted changes can be as upsetting as unwanted changes.

Summer Service Program 2018 Alumni Samantha

Every summer we offer rising 10th to 12th grade students a Summer Service Learning Experience focused on learning about issues of poverty and homelessness, building relationships with others involved in social change, getting to know persons who have experienced poverty and homelessness, and engaging in service with Project HOME and other agencies fighting poverty, hunger and homelessness in Philadelphia.
