2415 North Broad Street

This past June 1, we began receiving applications for our newest residence, 2415 N. Broad Street, scheduled to open up later this summer.  Over 1,000 persons stood in line to apply -- for a total of 88 units.  (Read more about that day here.)  We took the opportunity to do interviews with many of the persons in line to ask about their situation and their need for housing.  These are important stories that all Americans need to hear -- they tell the human story of the affordable housing crisis in this country.

For 25 years, David Brown had no place to call home.

“I used to be homeless and I was living on the street,” said Brown, now 60. “I refused to come in [off the street] because I thought Project HOME was like all the other homeless shelters that are taking advantage of the homeless.”

On Tuesday, March 8, we gathered in North Philadelphia to celebrate the groundbreaking of the 2415 North Broad Street residence, which will bring 88 more units of affordable housing to Philadelphia. Joan Dawson McConnon, our co-founder, associate executive director, and chief financial officer, opened the program by speaking to the powerful role community can play to improve the lives of all Philadelphians.
