Seemingly no one walks away from Philadelphia’s Project HOME without being deeply moved in some way. Maurice Grimes, a current Drexel University student and Lower Merion native, is no exception. Grimes says working alongside the Project HOME residents who have experienced homelessness has been nothing short of transformative.
“I hear their stories. They’ve lived a life that not many do, and it’s an unfortunate one. It makes you feel grateful for anything you have and you see their gratitude for what they’ve escaped. And it’s real. That’s what Project HOME does.”
