Ruth Williams House at the Gene & Marlene Epstein Building Grand Opening | Morris Williams

On Monday, April 23, 2018, we celebrated the Grand opening of our newest residence, Ruth Williams House at the Gene & Marlene Epstein Building. The residence, located at 2415 North Broad St., provides 88 units of affordable housing (20 dedicated to young adults) to men and women who are homeless, formerly homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless, as well as low-income members of the community. Morris Williams a long-time supporter of Project HOME and advocate for ending homelessness in Philadelphia shared a few thoughts in reflection of the grand opening.

Meg Saligman's Knotted Home installation at our Ruth Williams House at the Gene & Marlene Epstein Building is actually a series of individual pieces inspired by—and in many cases, repurposing—the Knotted Grotto. The text below is from the accompanying signage.

The Prayer River

Brightly-colored flowers blaze across a glass wall in our JBJ Soul Homes residence. Their petals are adorned with images of Project HOME community members from over nearly three decades.

The art installation, Growing Free (one of many that beautify our residences and facilities) was the conception of Philadelphia-based artist Meg Saligman. The inspiration, however, came from a source closer to home.
