Providing Homes, Restoring Health, Reclaiming Lives
We start by housing people directly from the streets, without precondition. Then we address their underlying issues around mental health, addiction, medical care, income, and education to help integrate and welcome them back into our community. We also provide furniture to folks moving out of homelessness from all over the city through our furniture bank.

Until 10 months ago, I used substances for 40 years. I grew up poor and started using crack cocaine when I was a 12-year-old kid because my stepfather was a big time drug dealer and used to bring 10 kilos from Miami every week. We would steal drugs from him and snort them and I became addicted at a young age because they were there for the taking. Then my mom put us in a home, also around when I was 12, and there were drugs there too. I was young and had easy access and it made addiction easy.
Given the current state of emergency in the city, we are not opening our offices today, June 1, 2020. The Philadelphia Furniture Bank will also remain closed as are all City offices and non-emergent services. We will, however, be working diligently because there is much to do.
