College Access Program, Project HOME

Posted by Project HOME on February 1, 2022

More than 4,300 people in Philadelphia experienced homelessness in 2021. Of those, more than 900 were children. Children facing uncertain housing situations are often unsure of what tomorrow will look like, and unsure of who is there to help them achieve their dreams.

This is where the College Access Program at Project HOME comes in.  The College Access Program at Project HOME is a partnership with the Philadelphia Office of Children and Families (OCF) Out-of-School Time (OST) program network. Through this service, Philadelphia youth experiencing homelessness or unstable housing have a place where they get extra support to work on creating a viable path to their future after graduation.
