Hub of Hope

 

From Philadelphia Weekly

The Hub of Hope is a partnership between SEPTA, the City of Philadelphia and homeless activist organization Project HOME. Spokespeople from both SEPTA and the City of Philadelphia cited the good works of the Hub of Hope when asked only about the turnstiles’ impact on the homeless populations.

 

From Philly.com:

Every weekday morning, souls who live in and around Suburban Station haul their few belongings through the maze of the station, through the cacophony of the Hub of Hope, the innovative homeless service center there, and make their way to a comfortable back room that feels, well, like a living room.

And that's what it's called.

Angie Lewis, Program Manager at the Hub of Hope, recently shared some very positive outcomes and inspriring reflections from the engagement center's first two months of operation. You can download the full outcomes report here.

On behalf of the entire team at the Hub of Hope, I wanted to share a snapshot of the Hub's first two months of operations. Before jumping into that, though, I'd like to share a few reflections.

Michelle, former resident and full-time employee of Project HOME, shares her journey from Homelessness to HOPE. Formerly homeless for decades, Michelle discovered Project HOME through the Hub of Hope where she went from volunteer to full-time employee at The Hub of Hope.

 

From Philly Voice:

Hub for Hope, a service center for Philadelphia’s homeless population, opened Tuesday in Suburban Station.

 

From CBS Philly:

It was a groundbreaking advance in Philadelphia’s response to homelessness Tuesday as officials cut the ribbon on the new Hub of Hope.

The sparkling new facility in Suburban Station is the culmination of years of work by homeless advocates, city officials and SEPTA.

 

From WHYY:

Philadelphia’s new day center for the homeless opens its doors Wednesday, but it’ll be opening in an unusual location — underground.

 

From 6ABC:

Hub of Hope is ready to unveil a major upgrade to an 11,000 square foot facility in SEPTA's Center City subway concourse.

Project HOME worked with the City of Philadelphia and SEPTA to create this first of its kind facility.

It is not a shelter, but rather a way to connect the city's homeless to other services.

 

From the Philadelphia Inquirer

Guiding chronically homeless people to the assistance they need is a delicate process, said those who work with the city’s indigent, and requires giving people with nowhere to go a place to feel welcome.
