When people ask us what it is that we find so meaningful in working with and for the Project HOME mission, the reasons are many.
We partner with Project HOME not only because it is sorely needed, but because it is a strong, joyous, special place where human rights and dignity are prized and human potential is encouraged and nourished.
We strongly believe in their mission that seeks to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness by empowering individuals with the skills, resources and support they need to attain their fullest potential and a higher quality of life. While a large percentage of our volunteer time and funding is dedicated to the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs, the foundation also supports a number of activities that are part of the larger Project HOME programs, services and facilities.
The foundation has contributed to Project HOME's supportive, affordable housing developments in Center City Philadelphia, including Connelly House and Kate's Place, James Widener Ray Homes, and JBJ Soul Homes, the Stephen Klein Wellness Center and Gloria Casarez Residence, the Hub of Hope and Francis House of Peace. The foundation has also supported the start-up of a women's emergency respite center that operates at Project HOME's main center at 1515 Fairmount Ave. Volunteers are needed to help with this center; please call 215.272.7272 to help.
