Ardmore in the Community: Volunteers Aid Hub of Hope in Philadelphia
Volunteers from Ardmore Banking Advisors recently had the opportunity to work with Hub of Hope, an outreach provider sponsored by Project Home, to prepare and deliver prepackaged meals for those in need in Philadelphia.
The volunteers delivered over 100 meals at the Hub and around the City Hall area, before returning to the headquarters to prepare another hundred for distribution the following day.
“It was our honor to volunteer for Hub of Hope and Project Home,” said Ardmore CEO Sandy Spratt. “They provide invaluable services to some of the most vulnerable members of our community, particularly in the wake of the COVID pandemic, and we are happy to have done our small part to assist in their efforts.”
Since its establishment in 2011, The Hub of Hope has offered a safe place where people who are experiencing homelessness can enjoy a warm cup of coffee, take a shower, wash their laundry, and speak to peers or resource coordinators and ultimately, begin the process of finding a permanent home. Meal outreach to Philadelphia’s homeless is done five days a week, rain or shine. In addition to social services, the Hub of Hope offers a range of health care services, including—primary medical care, behavioral health care, and reproductive health services.
Project HOME has worked for over 30 years to end chronic street homelessness and alleviate poverty in Philadelphia, through outreach coordination and shelter.
