Project HOME will host a fundraiser for the last piece of private funding to build the Gloria Casarez Residence, one of the commonwealth’s only low-income, LGBTQ-friendly residences for at-risk young adults.



The Hub of Hope is a partnership between the transit agency, SEPTA, and Project HOME, a social service agency for unsheltered people. SEPTA provided the space — a renovated 800-square-foot storefront inside the underground rail station at Penn Center downtown.
