A Great Place to Work and Make a Difference!
We are a rapidly growing, independent nonprofit agency in Philadelphia with a mission to empower persons to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, to address structural causes of poverty, and to enable all of us to attain our fullest potential as individuals and as members of the broader society. In so doing, we run homeless outreach and residential programs and offer other supportive services for chronically homeless adults and families. We also are involved in a major neighborhood revitalization program in lower north central Philadelphia, partnering with the community to provide affordable home ownership, education and health services. Many of our programs have been recognized as national models. For example, Project H.O.M.E. was honored with a STAR award from The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty for our constructive, creative, innovative, and replicable approaches to ending homelessness. Additionally, Project H.O.M.E. was a recipient of the Ford Foundation’s Leadership for a Changing World Award. We offer outstanding benefits: competitive compensation, health insurance, paid time off, a retirement savings plan, just to name a few. We have the following opportunity available at the Honickman Learning Center/Comcast Technology Labs:
