 - Thank You -

to all who participated and  donated in Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network’s very first Generosity Series 5k Walk/Run! We may have been a little soggy, but nothing stopped our efforts to launch our new HOMELESSNESS PREVENTION PROGRAM. Every child needs a safe place to call “home”, and every family needs the foundation to provide one! We are at $18,000 and there are still a few days to make donations toward our high-reach goal of $20,000  through our website or returning to www.generosityseries.com/pihn5k. Your steps have made milestones, and we couldn’t be more grateful. PIHN has the best community of support we could ask for.

About Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network

The problem of family homelessness is complex. A large number of factors that are often out of our control—such as job loss and health crises—can easily change the financial status of an otherwise stable family. And it’s a growing problem. On any night of the year in Philadelphia, an estimated 1,000 to 1,300 children and their families are homeless.

With the worsening economy, families are finding themselves unable to make their rent or mortgage payments. And Philadelphia’s shelter system is stretched beyond capacity. Unfortunately, there is no simple solution or quick fix. Ending homelessness requires a holistic approach that begins with meeting immediate needs, and extends further to alleviate the root causes and help families achieve lasting independence.

Our approach is highly effective. 92% of our families have succeeded in permanently overcoming homelessness. Please read through our website to learn more about our program.
