Ericka Brown has become an expert in many things over the last year: teaching computer literacy to adults, managing the phones and doors at the front desk of several Project HOME sites, and telling a story that will leave an audience spellbound.


Holly McBride did her measure best to keep her children out of the Philadelphia shelter system.

For years, she worked hard to find them spare spaces with family members and friends, but her options eventually ran out and Holly and her children were forced into a shelter system she had successfully avoided for so long.

Luckily, their stay would be a short one. In 2008, the 28-year-old mom was able to move her twin boys, Thomas and Gabriel, into Project HOME's Rowan Homes residence, and she hasn't looked back.
