Nov. 6, 2017 – LTK had the pleasure of attending the first annual benefit for the Hub of Hope, a joint effort of SEPTA, Project HOME and the City of Philadelphia to aid the area’s homeless population.
LTK was represented by Dominic DiBrito, Chris Lawlor, Natalie Cornell and Ray Carini.
The truly innovative idea for a service center for the homeless at Suburban Station in Center City Philadelphia was the brainchild of SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey D. Knueppel, with the support of Project HOME Executive Director Sister Mary Scullion, and Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney. We were honored to be among some of Philadelphia’s prominent businesses in contributing to an overall total of more than $800,000 raised for this cause.
The center, which is expected to open in January, will be housed in a new 11,000-square-foot facility built from unused space inside the station. The Hub will offer medical and behavioral healthcare, meals, showers, laundry and access to recovery systems and programs. The goal is to make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring.
