Who can vote in Pennsylvania?

Project HOME joined with advocates across Pennsylvania to protect General Assistance and fund affordable housing. John Boyd, a Project HOME community member, shared his powerful story at a press conference.

Good afternoon everyone, my name is John Boyd.  I am here to express my gratitude and ask for your support to protect General Assistance.  I am alive today because General Assistance is supporting my stability and helping me cover the expenses in my new apartment so that I can live independently again.

--Open Letter to All Candidates for Elective Offices--

Dear Candidates for Elected Offices Representing Philadelphia: 

After years of advocacy and a ruling by the PA Supreme Court last September, the General Assistance program is now up and running. This is a tremendous win for low-income people in Pennsylvania, many whom have been living with no income since 2012 when the program was eliminated.

However, General Assistance is already at risk. Legislation has been introduced to eliminate General Assistance again.

The federal government is currently in the longest shutdown in the history of the United States of America. In addition to the over 800,000 federal workers harmed by the shutdown, millions of Americans who rely on federal programs for their health, safety, and wellbeing are at risk.

Election Day Rides and Resources - Get ready for Election Day on Tuesday, November 6. Polls are open from 7 AM - 8 PM. Time to make a plan.

You have the right & freedom to vote!

  • Call 866-OUR-VOTE or text  OUR VOTE to 97779 if you have issues voting or have questions about your rights, and you’ll be connected to a nonpartisan trained volunteer who can help you.

Know someone in your Philadelphia program who needs a ride?

Join Vote For Homes in our nonpartisan efforts to encourage and mobilize voters, focusing on people who are low-income, homeless, living with disabilities, or formerly incarcerated.  Together, we registered over 600 people—now we need to support them getting to the polls!

We need volunteers to help us call or text voters and remind them about the election, to knock on doors and assist voters in making their election day plans, and to provide a limited number of rides for voters to the polls on Election Day, November 6th.

Join Vote For Homes in our ongoing nonpartisan effort to register and mobilize voters by learning about how to support the voting rights of people who are low-income, homeless, living with disabilities, or formerly incarcerated. The voter registration deadline for the November Election is October 9th!
