Mission Statement

To work towards the elimination of homelessness by encouraging the development of necessary resources in the public and private sectors including housing, income, health care and other basic life supports and by raising and maintaining public awareness of the causes of homelessness in a way that contributes to its elimination.

Description

Incorporated in 1982, the Philadelphia Committee to End Homelessness (PCEH) has dedicated itself to reducing the number of homeless individuals in our city through combined prevention and intervention. Our funding comes only through private sources; we do not seek or accept public funds. PCEH receives 27% of its funding from individuals; 28% from foundations, faith organizations and schools; 17% from our annual art auction and 28% from holiday card sales. This approach to funding allows us the flexibility to design/alter programs to meet individual and systematic changes. PCEH works directly with people who are homeless and people who are at high risk of becoming homeless with an array of services and referrals that meet the client at their level of needs. Our services include the following: Advocacy Homelessness prevention Day Center Street Outreach Community Education Research and Support
