Mission Statement

Travelers Aid of Philadelphia assists homeless families and travelers in Philadelphia. Travelers Aid Philadelphia provides professional counseling, emergency shelter, housing, direct assistance, and children and youth services for two groups of people -- homeless families and stranded travelers. Travelers Aid Philadelphia provides information services and advice to the traveling public at transportation centers.

Description

Travelers Aid Philadelphia works closely with the City Office of Supportive Housing to improve the lives of homeless families in Philadelphia by providing safe and decent shelter and housing. TAP's mission is to break the generational cycle of homeless by enriching the lives of the children and supporting their parent's efforts at self sufficiency. TAP tries to light a spark of hopefulness and confidence in the children and their parents.

In the past year, Travelers Aid's services benefited 278 homeless Philadelphia families, including 834 children, and assisted 1,413 stranded travelers, including 235 children.

In the past year, Travelers Aid established a Passengers Assistance Booth at 30th Street Station and currently provides travel information and advice to over 1,800 Amtrak and SEPTA passengers each week.
