Every family’s needs are different, but every journey with FP Philly begins the same.

First, a family must fill out our online Intake form in order to get directly connected with one of our social workers.

Completing Connection

Then, our social worker connects with the family in need in order to get to know them and the challenges they face.

Step 2

Graduation

When a family completes our program they officially become Alumni. While 92% of the families we work with never return to a shelter, families that graduate from our programs remain a part of our community forever.

How It Works

92% of families never return to a shelter after working with our team.

Best Path Forward

Determining the best path forward can look like: emergency relocation, financial support, or even facilitating landlord + tenant mediation to only name a few. Every family's needs are different and constantly changing, and so is our response.

Our Model

In 1991, a network of congregations in Northwest Philadelphia joined together to create the Northwest Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network. They housed families and allowed them to stabilize until they found more permanent housing.

In 2012, a second network of congregations in Northeast Philadelphia joined what then became Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network.

Since 2019, we have taken on a more proactive approach towards more preventative support. This way, we work to keep families from being evicted or homeless at all.

Today, we support families throughout Philadelphia in a variety of ways, responding with resources specifically suited for the family's needs.

Our Services

Each family faces unique challenges. Our services are customized to address their specific needs.

Together, we are working to end homelessness, one family at a time.

Emergency Housing & Relocation

We partner with caring congregations, landlords, and hotels to provide each family with the privacy and space they need.

Innovative Housing Solutions

We do what it takes to get families housed. We provide deposit assistance, shallow rent subsidies, and insurance to landlords who rent to families with poor credit who enroll in our tenant training program.

Prevention & Diversion Services

We collaborate with families, landlords, and other agencies to prevent family homelessness before it begins.

Ongoing Support

Our relationships with families extend for years as their needs evolve. They receive education and career counseling, family therapy, and financial guidance amongst other services. Some family members then become volunteers and "pay it forward."

Community Network

Working together as a community to serve those in need of assistance, is a two fold gift. Not only can families stabilize, but they can access a broader community filled with opportunity for connection.

Children & Youth

Each family member matters. We provide clothing, diapers, school supplies, art therapy, counseling, and trauma-informed care to help children learn and thrive.

I honestly didn't think that an organization like this even existed, especially in Philadelphia. They are a very important part of our lives and we look at them as family.
