Ten years ago, Germantown Academy teamed with Project HOME to create something unique: a small, top-notch private school for low-income kids in North Philadelphia.

With alumni placed in high-achieving prep schools around the region, the Community Partnership School (CPS) is celebrating a decade of success and making plans to expand.

When Project HOME began working to end homelessness, we immediately confronted a deeper question: How do we prevent it? What types of supports would create a community where homelessness is no longer a possibility?

Jessica Hartfield shared this reflection at our College Access Program (CAP) graduation  last year. She graduated from the University of  Pennsylvania with a Masters in Social Work in May 2015.

As I look out at you, our CAP participants, I feel as though I have just left those seats. I remember how unsure, intimidated, and apprehensive  about the future I was.

Here at Project HOME, we know the power of stories. Telling our stories to one another has healed us. And last month, we did it in a powerful way at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs.

Several members of the Project HOME community participated in “100% Philadelphia,” a theater piece that was part of the Philadelphia Fringe Arts Festival.  One hundred different Philadelphians, representing the overall demographics of the city, shared their stories.  One of the participants was Priscilla "Ms. Tee" Bennett, who is teacher of the 2nd and 3rd graders at our Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs.
