Project HOME in the News

 

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.

From The Inquirer

Philadelphia recently reached a landmark achievement. On Dec. 6, 2017, Project HOME partnered with the city, state, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development  and many other supporters and advocates to break ground on the Gloria Casarez Residence at 1315 N. Eighth St. It is the first young-adult, LGBTQ-friendly, permanent supportive housing in the state of Pennsylvania.

 

From the Philadelphia Inquirer

On this frozen Friday in January, Michelle Sheppard returned to Sherwood Forest.

That’s what everyone called the vestibule in the depths of Suburban Station, the one off JFK Boulevard, where Michelle and other homeless people would sleep, behind the marble pillars that lined the hallway. Hidden like Robin Hood and his Merry Men.

A whimsical name for a dire place.

 

From 6ABC

Some of Santa's elves stopped by SEPTA headquarters in Center City this morning to help with bags and bags of toys.

All of this is the result of the agency's 37th Yuletoy drive.

From games to bikes and dolls, the donations were put into big plastic bags and packed onto a bus.

SEPTA General Manager Jeff Knueppel says the turnout this year has been extraordinary.
