What we're about

Help to make a difference in our communities. Lend a hand to non-profit organizations in and around Philadelphia while meeting new people and sharing positive experiences that make this big world just a teenie bit better!

We have a "2 strikes" policy: if you are a no show 2 times, with no explanation to the event host afterwards, you will be removed from the group. And if you repeatedly cancel at the last minute, you will also be removed. Sorry to be so harsh, but it's not fair to anyone on the waiting list or to the organizations we are trying to help.

We also want active members in this group. Please be sure to visit our site at least 1 time per year. If you do not, we will assume you are no longer interested and you will be removed from the group.

Annual count of homeless people by Project HOME

1338 Mt Vernon St

Project HOME conducts an annual census of homeless people every year, the Point in Time count. Hundreds of volunteers are needed on the street throughout the city so that the whole city can be canvassed in one night. It's a big commitment for volunteers (a few hours outdoors in the middle a January weeknight), but you'll be contributing to an important part of Project HOME's mission and gain new insights into the reality of homelessness. Other benies: * Pep talk by Sister Mary Scullion and other giants! * Free parking at Rodeph Shalom! * Free long-sleeved T-shirt! Feel free to message me with questions before signing up at: https://projecthome.volunteerhub.com/lp/pitcount2019/ You must sign up with Project HOME at the above URL. We will do this as a team with an experienced leader. Directions: https://rodephshalom.org/about/directions
