The Project HOME community greatly appreciates receiving in-kind items. Unfortunately, space and staff limitations make it impossible for Project HOME to accept certain types of items. In addition, needs are dependent upon the specific needs of the individuals served. Please click on any one of the four tabs to see the needs of our various programming.

The Hub of Hope accepts donations Tuesday through Thursday from 9 am to 6 pm and Monday, Friday from 9 am to 2 pm. The Hub is located at 1400 Arch Street, in the Lower Level of the Suburban Station Concourse between the Municipal Services Building and the opening at Broad St. and Arch St.

As we meet the needs of those in poverty, we are healing ourselves and our nation. As we ensure that all families have enough to eat, we are building the banquet table for everyone. As we work to provide health care and quality education to all, we are making our whole society healthier and wiser. As we bring those living on our streets home, we are finding our own way home because…

“None of us are home until all of us are home.”

As part of our individualized, one-on-one relationship approach, Project HOME does not engage in mass outdoor food distribution to people living on the streets. Project HOME also does not engage in large-scale handouts of clothing or blankets, and cannot advise your group on how to do so.

  • Used bedding and/or blankets
  • Used socks and/or underwear
  • Furniture and large household appliances
  • Toys or baby equipment
  • Computers
  • Perishable food
