Mission Statement

Guild House West is a property managed by Friends Rehabilitation Program, Inc. which provides affordable housing and social services for vulnerable communities inPhiladelphia, including the elderly, the disabled, people living with HIV/AIDS and those experiencing homelessness.

Description

Guild House West is a 155-unit residential facility serving north-central Philadelphia’s low income elderly and disabled populations. The average monthly income of GHW is less than $900, indicating that most of our residents are under the poverty line, qualifying as "Extremely Low Income." Guild House West is an independent living facility, subsidized under HUD 202, and we seek to make the most of limited resources and become a model for this type of housing not only in the city of Philadelphia but in the United States at large.

Currently, Guild House West is home to ten individually maintained garden plots, a small orchard, and a large community garden. The garden and orchard supplement a twice weekly food pantry which is free to all residents.
