Since 1974, we have been working in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia to help people re-enter the workforce, train for jobs, find housing, and build community. Over the last two decades we have also built a continuum of housing services in an effort to end veteran homelessness.
The foundation of our work lies in our ability to nurture partnerships with other mindful organizations. By aligning missions, resources, and creativity, we’re able to muster the latent energy in our community.
