[NEWS] In snow and cold, chronic homeless find rest at Hub of Hope

 

Center City Philadelphia was a ghost town on Thursday, Feb. 13. With the area in the middle of the latest snowstorm of a particularly cruel winter, schools were closed, many offices including city offices were closed, public transportation was virtually non-existent, and people were urged to simply stay home.

There are some jobs that are just too important to close — police, firefighters, health care workers of course. Some others you might not expect. Project HOME’s Hub of Hope, tucked into a side passage of Philadelphia’s Suburban Station, is a case in point. It not only opened as scheduled on Feb. 13, it actually extended hours.
