When we asked Shannon Long why she volunteers so much of her time to local nonprofits in her community, she told us "I give back to my community because when I, unfortunately, stumbled upon some hard times many years ago, my community helped me get back on my feet. I always like to give it forward because you never know when you might need a little help in life." Volunteers like Shannon are the key to enabling The Philadelphia Furniture Bank to serve hundreds of individuals and families each year.

This September 1st, Pathways to Housing PA reached a big milestone. We celebrated our 10th anniversary in the City of Brotherly and Sisterly Love. We have come a long way from the days of working in a single room with a few employees to now, ten years out, having a staff of over 80, supporting over 400 of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens using the Housing First model. We have also helped thousands move out of homelessness by providing furniture through our program, the Philadelphia Furniture Bank.
