[NEWS] For Philly's formerly homeless, it is better to make one little candle

 

From The Inquirer

So there’s a quiet bliss that burbles among the formerly homeless folks who toil shoulder to shoulder in a tiny workshop to create small-batch, hand-poured, soy-wax candles at Project HOME, the nonprofit headquartered in Philadelphia’s Fairmount neighborhood. The urban artisans, who live in Project HOME housing, are currently in the business of preparing “HOME Warming” gift boxes that include their crafted candles, along with mugs and ceramic coasters featuring artwork made by residents.
