Get Involved: Homelessness

By Young Involved Philadelphia (other events)

The number of people living on Philadelphia's streets has gone up 10 percent in one year. 

Earlier this year, over 1,000 were unsheltered during January's near-record low temperatures. 

4,535 people have already been admitted to city shelters in 2018. 

What are the root causes of homelessness in Philadelphia? Why is the number of unsheltered people trending up? What are our institutions doing about it? What can I do about it?

Join us for a conversation with some of the city's leading organizations combating and addressing systemic homelessness in the city. Hear what they're doing, what work needs to still be done, and how you can directly impact - and start to change - the city's direction on serving the homeless. 

Seating is limited, so arrive early. First come, first served.
