Since 1989, Project HOME has helped more than 8,000 people break the cycle of homelessness and poverty by providing a continuum of services that includes street outreach, supportive housing and comprehensive services focusing on health care, education and employment. Adult and youth education and enrichment programs are offered at the Honickman Learning Center and Comcast Technology Labs, and community-based health care services are made available through the program at the Stephen Klein Wellness Center.
Project HOME and its partners have pledged to end chronic street homelessness in Philadelphia, housing 2,200 people – 1,000 people who have been long-term street homeless, 200 youth who are homeless and/or aging out of foster care, and 1,000 people who are homeless on the street but ready for recovery and work.
Project HOME's supportive housing programs offer permanent, subsidized housing for individuals and families who had been homeless.
Project HOME's Outreach Coordination Center, in partnership with the City of Philadelphia and other providers, coordinates outreach to people living on the streets of Philadelphia.
The Stephen Klein Wellness Center expands Project HOME’s primary care, behavioral health and health education services, and offers new services, including dental care, a fitness facility managed by the YMCA, and a pharmacy.
Education programs are tailored to help both children and adults move toward greater prosperity by increasing their educational and employment opportunities through comprehensive technology and literacy instruction.
Employment programs provide career trainings, job readiness workshops, life skills workshops, GED classes, and other resources to help people improve their lives and gain employment.
