Dear Friends:

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.

Housing First Five Key Principles

In systems of care for people who experiencing homelessness, Housing First has achieved buzzword status. More and more housing organizations are adopting the term to describe their work towards ending homelessness. And most of these organizations don’t understand that Housing First is the name for a documented, evidence-based model of programming that was developed to support a very specific population.

Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. It can be represented by a good deed, good turn, favor, act of assistance, service, help, or aid. So why don’t we do more of it, especially in service organizations?
