From the Philadelphia Tribune:

Without federal funding, Sister Mary Scullion wonders how one of Philadelphia’s newest affordable housing developments would have been built.

On Monday morning, Scullion stood in a first-floor conference room in the Ruth Williams House at the Gene & Marlene Epstein Building in North Philadelphia, which opened this year.

We did it!

Thanks to tireless efforts by advocates around the country, including thousands of letters you sent to elected officials, the new federal budget includes new funding that can help us make progress toward ending homelessness.

Congress passed (and the president signed) an omnibus spending package for the remainder of fiscal year (FY) 2018, including $42.7 billion in funding for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will receive $42.7 billion. Some highlights of the spending package include:

Rep. Brendan Boyle (PA-13) recognized Sister Mary Scullion on the floor of the House of Representatives for her work to end homelessness.

 

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.
