Project home was recognized as Philadelphia Union’s Charity of the Match in the Union's 2-0 victory against Houston Dynamo.
Project Home started in 1989 to try and break the cycle of homlessness and poverty in its community. The non-profit's goal is to help adults, children and families through fostering a safe and respectful environment for its benefactors to support each other through struggles with self-esteem, recovery and help them gain the confidence to move toward self-actualization.
Project Home achieves its mission thorough a myriad of services, including street outreach and supportive housing, while also working with local government and business to provide affordable housing, economic development and environmental enrichment programs. The organization also is active in creating awareness for the struggles of those who suffer from chronic homelessness and educate those about homelessness.
Project Home has more than 12 housing locations to help those in homelessness throughout the Philadelphia area.
For being named Charity of the Match, Project Home received an award at halftime from Philadelphia Insurance Companies, one of the top insurers of non-profits and the proud sponsor of the Charity of the Match.
