Roots and Branches

Once a month, members of our community gather for what we call our Recovery Cafés.  These are not formal or structured meetings, but a time for sharing stories and supporting each other. For an hour, it is a space where people are free to be vulnerable, without judgment, and where much hard-earned healing wisdom is given.

Throughout 2019, Project HOME is marking its 30th Anniversary. A lot can change in 30 years – and we at Project HOME have gone through plenty of change, as has our society.

As we start 2019, all of us at Project HOME are deeply grateful for the progress that has been made – with your support and commitment – in addressing homelessness.  We have brought thousands of persons home, including many people who had lived on streets with severe, untreated mental illness.

Roots and Branches: Reflections from Sister Mary

There were months of build-up, then two intense days, and now the papal visit of 2015 to Philadelphia is history. But most Philadelphians, I believe, are still feeling a deep sense of inspiration and uplift from the experience of this truly amazing visitor, Pope Francis.

We witnessed his personal acts of mercy—his time with persons in a homeless shelter in Washington, DC; his gathering with prisoners here in Philadelphia; his outreach to and advocacy for immigrants; his embrace of persons with disabilities, his warm welcome of children.
