Support Project HOME During COVID-19

Thank you for considering a gift to Project HOME during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. As a provider of essential services to some of the City of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable residents, Project HOME will continue to provide high quality services – rooted in dignity and care and compassion – through our coordinated street outreach efforts, healthcare delivery at the Stephen Klein Wellness Center and key satellite locations, as well as all of our residences and program sites.  
Your gift will bolster our operations and provide Project HOME with the resources we will need to confront COVID-19. This can take the form of providing weekly meals to vulnerable residents who are sheltering in place, purchasing temporal thermometers, or securing personal protective equipment for staff.  
The COVID 19 outbreak presents many challenges to our community and hardworking staff. 
Your gift to Project HOME lifts our spirits and gives us the encouragement to press on, enabling us to chart a pathway to health, wellness, and safety for those we are called to serve. 
Thank you for believing with us that none of us are home, until all of us are home.
 
GroceryLifeLine Program
Many of our folks are at extreme risk and vulnerable right now, and we hope that now, as has been the case for over 30 years, our community will step up to help.  
We are now collaborating with Roonga to create the Project HOME GroceryLifeLine to ensure our vulnerable residents have the essentials.  
Will you please help keep our most vulnerable residents safe and healthy by signing up to become a GroceryLifeLine? It only takes four simple steps:
 
Four Simple Steps
Step 1: Select a resident’s profile. You will receive a confirmation email with all key details;  
Step 2: Purchase (or order for delivery) items from the resident’s personalized grocery list; 
Step 3: If purchasing and delivering, please clearly label all bags with the resident’s first name and last initial. We ask that you wipe down all items for safety precautions; and,  
Step 4: Deliver (or direct delivery of) the groceries to the Project HOME resident within 48 hours of your sign up, between 10 AM and 4 PM. Please do not enter the building, but merely ring the front bell and wait for someone to come to the door. You, or the delivery person, can then leave the groceries there and a community member will deliver the groceries to the resident’s apartment.

Project HOME’s GroceryLifeLine is an opportunity to build community and to stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable among us. We hope you will join us.

Items We Need

As our staff and community members are working tirelessly on the front lines of service, you are responding with generosity and compassion. We are in need of additional supplies during this time.
In addition, you may purchase needed items for delivery, or bring them directly, to either of these sites Monday through Saturday between 9 AM and 5 PM.

Make Masks For Our Residents

We Need Masks

It is at times like this that we start thinking of how we can help others. But how to help someone when you’re stuck at home? We have the perfect craft project!

Right now, at Project HOME, we need masks. We have a thousand residents who need two masks each. We’re not asking you to make two thousand masks, but if you could make a few, that would be a huge help!

We recognize that our frontline medical workers need to be prioritized right now, but if you have some craft material to spare for our residents, we would be so grateful!


Make A Mask

Below are links to instructions for the types of mask that we can accept; pick whichever option is easiest for you to produce.

Once your mask(s) are complete, please launder them and place them in a plastic zipper bag. You can then drop them off or mail them to:
