The Vote for Homes! Coalition created a nonpartisan Voters Guide for the 2014 Pennsylvania Governors race which was published in the September issue of One Step Away. Pennsylvania's gubernatorial candidates, Tom Corbett and Tom Wolf, were asked to provide 75-word answers to our questions regarding critical issues: Ending Homelessness, Affordable Housing, Economic Recovery & Jobs, General Assistance, Prison Release & Homelessness, and Health Care. The candidates full responses can be view below.
Join Vote for Homes in our ongoing effort to mobilize voters by learning about the process of voter registration and the voting rights of people who are low-income, homeless, living with disabilities, or formerly incarcerated.
We will host three remaining voter registration training sessions at Project HOME, 1515 Fairmount Avenue, Philadelphia 19130 in preparation for the November 4 General Election:
In this challenging budget year, please join us in sending a clear message to our elected officials in Harrisburg: we need to reinvest in housing, schools, health care, and human services. Quality services save costs over the long term, create jobs, and attract families, visitors, and businesses to Pennsylvania. Encourage your elected officials to raise needed revenue, fund the PA Housing Trust Fund, and expand Medicaid.
Vote for Homes is looking for volunteers to help mobilize voters this coming primary for PA Governor. We need volunteers to help us call voters and remind them about the election. We are also looking for volunteers on Election Day, May 20, who can assist voters at the polls or provide transportation.
Voter's rights advocates and the Vote for Homes Coalition discuss why voting matters in this video.
With support from State Voices, Progress Now Education Fund developed a short video about the Vote for Homes Coalition and Project HOME to highlight our voter registration and Get Out The Vote (GOTV) activities in Pennsylvania.

Next Steps After Solutions Not Citations Campaign...
The Solutions Not Citations campaign was a success, however our work to protect the rights of those who are homeless and living on the streets is not yet finished. We believe that the City must remain vigilant in ensuring the dignity and rights of homeless Philadelphians are not infringed upon, especially by the police officers charged with protecting us all.
