IAM Project HOME: Millie Korn

This story originally appeared in our Winter Edition of News from HOME.

About 20 years ago, a friend of Millie Korn’s, Bill Harvey, who was then on Project HOME’s Board of Trustees, told her, “I have a group I think you should work with.” Millie, a native of Philadelphia, has run a title insurance agency for the last 30 years. The new client, she found out, was Project HOME. “Ever since, it’s been a wonderful working relationship,” she says.

Like most Americans, Janet Stearns has her own personal recollections of September 11, 2001.

I Am Project HOME: Tricia Dressel

Since moving to Philadelphia almost 16 years ago, Tricia Dressel has had plenty of experience with nonprofits and community-based organizations. But when she had the chance to join the Project HOME staff three years ago as our Director of Human Resources, she knew it was an opportunity she had to seize. “I had always admired the work of Project HOME and the impact it had at a community level. And I saw such strong leadership in [co-founders] Sister Mary Scullion and Joan McConnon.”

I am Project HOME | Leonard Buckner

This story originally appeared in our summer edition of News from HOME.

Leonard Buckner was six years old when his family came to Rowan Homes. His mother, Tanya, and her three children —Tanisha, Leonard, and Latanya—were among the first families to move into Project HOME’s residence for families in the St. Elizabeth’s neighborhood of Philadelphia. “She was excited to have a place to call our home,” Leonard remembers, “and the apartments were  beautiful—bigger than some houses.”

Mark Williamson

The first thing you notice about Mark Williamson is his warm and welcoming smile.  You might also notice the crisp blue uniform emblazoned with the Project HOME name and logo.  And between the two, you would begin to understand why he is such a valuable member of our community.
