Providing Homes,  Restoring Health,  Reclaiming Lives

Our Impact
Providing Homes
formerly homeless people with disabilities are living independently in every neighborhood in Philadelphia
Restoring Health
of participants see a primary care physician at least once per year
Reclaiming Lives
hours of paid transitional employment for marginalized people
of those who were previously chronically homeless retain their housing for more than five years
medical appointments and 198 behavioral health visits were held in our clinic this year
households furnished for people and families moving out of homelessness

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.

Pathways to Housing; the Housing First, Harm Reduction Model

We belive that housing is a basic human right.

It's that simple.

Housing First is a human right
Our most basic needs for survival are food, water, warmth, and rest, but a person is only able to maintain these things if they first have safety and security. Housing First is a philosophical approach that says, let’s start with a permanent place to live.
Our fearless leader, Christine Simiriglia, was recognized by the Social Innovations Journal last week. We're so proud that she was recognized with this very well deserved award. Congratulations to all of the winners and nominees!
