From the Philadelphia Inquirer

Tanya Baker and Hyacinth King expected to strike out with Little Miss Betty Wilson, a 64-year-old homeless woman bundled up and seated alone on a subway concourse floor near City Hall on Sunday.

His first night outside was on a bench in Logan Square. He remembers the cold of that long-ago night. He remembers feeling scared.

For the next 25 years, David Brown stayed outside.

Many of his nights were spent huddled beneath blankets at a cardboard encampment next to the former Youth Study Center on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.


From the Philadelphia Daily News

IN ROMAN mythology, the goddess Juno is hailed as a protector, a guardian of her people. A different "Juno" is bearing down on the Philly region and doesn't seem interested in protecting anyone.

A “code blue” has been declared in our area because of the brutal weather on the horizon, and outreach workers are hitting the streets, trying to convince hundreds of chronically homeless men and women living around Philadelphia to come inside.


From the Philly Voice

A group of volunteers will canvass Philadelphia on Wednesday night to count the city’s homeless population in order to gauge the city's progress in fighting homelessness.

BY NOW, the Hub of Hope, Project HOME's seasonal social-service center for the homeless in Suburban Station, should be buzzing with men and women wanting to see a case worker or a doctor or just get a short reprieve from the cold with a tepid cup of coffee or a pair of socks.

But in a cruel irony, the Hub of Hope is homeless.

Hub of Hope

From the Philadelphia Metro

Some of the city’s homeless received an unwelcome surprise in recent weeks to find that a social service center located in the Suburban Station concourse isn’t coming back.

“How would you feel if you got up at five, came down to the Hub and see this?” asked Carmena Green, a homeless outreach worker with Project HOME, outside the vacant storefront formerly occupied by “Hub of Hope.”

The underground hub for Center City’s homeless is in limbo, just as Philadelphia gets hit with its first code blue temperatures of the year.


From NBC 10

On any given night, about a third of Center City's homeless -- about 100 people -- sleep in the concourse under Philadelphia's Suburban Station. Project HOME's "cafe" -- a type of drop-in services center -- has operated there over the last three winters.


From the Los Angeles Times:

So a Jesuit priest and a Sister of Mercy nun walked into Homegirl Cafe, and for a moment, it seemed that anything was possible, up to and including world peace.
