Volunteers are vital to the Philadelphia Furniture Bank moving its mission forward. Webuyanycar.com came in for an employee day of service to build IKEA dressers.

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. 

Pathways to Housing PA celebrates is celebrating its 10 year anniversary in Philadelphia. Donate today so that we can continue our work to end homelessness.

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.

Pathways to Housing PA board member and homeless service provider Evan Figueroa-Vargas educates others in Philadelphia on homelessness, active addiction and recovery.

Those closest to the problem are closest to the solutions.

Dave is a member of the Pathways' community. He now works part-time at the Philadelphia Furniture Bank (PFB) as part of Pathways' Transitional Supported Employment Program. He agreed to talk to Howard Pinder, PFB's Assistant Director, about his experiences. We believe that our stories are as important as our successes.
