Mission Statement

Our mission at Gentle Gratitude is to provide low-income communities in Philadelphia with access to fundamental resources that empower them to lead dignified lives. Through our events and initiatives, we aim to alleviate financial hardships for community members and foster a sense of hope and opportunity.

Description

Gentle Gratitude was founded in 2021 by two women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., an organization founded on the principles of Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service. The organization's initial initiative focused on providing blankets and gloves to houseless community members in Center City, Philadelphia. Building on this foundation, Gentle Gratitude expanded its operations to provide winter coats to over 300 community members in West Philadelphia within the first couple of months of operations. Since then, we've hosted several initiatives addressing food insecurity, education, health & safety, and more.
