PEC News / Events
The staff at PEC welcome you to watch this video about Althea (her name has been changed to protect her family\'s privacy), who has moved into one of our permanent housing units.
While families like Althea\'s reside at PEC, they participate in parenting education, afterschool programs, computer classes, on-site counseling, case management, goal planning, employment services, financial literacy programs, and events like the annual Lancaster Avenue Jazz Festival, where they can join the broader community where they may be putting down permanent roots.
You can click here to read a letter from Nikki Johnson-Huston, one of our supporters who experienced homelessness as a child in California. Now that she has put down her permanent roots in Philadelphia, she shares her story and asks for your support of our mission to nurture families, stregnthen neighborhoods and drive change.
Thirty-nine families have moved from emergency or transitional housing back into the community since January 1 this year. Many more are waiting for their opportunity and still need your help. You can click here to make a donation.
