From WHYY:

Jerome Maynard’s two-bedroom apartment in Roxborough is a special place — not because of the beige carpeting and white walls, but simply because it’s his.

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.
