Next Philadelphia Project
Depaul USA Selects Next Philly Project
After months of careful deliberation and needs assessment, the Depaul USA New Project Working Group has determined that Depaul USA's next project in Philadelphia should provide permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals with complex medical issues. The proposed project would serve 10-20 individuals and offer on site medical care. Hospice and palliative care would also be available.
Depaul USA has now entered the project planning and design phase. The goal is to submit a complete project proposal to the City of Philadelphia's Office of Supportive Housing this summer for possible federal funding. Depaul USA has applied for a foundation grant to enable it to engage housing developers and other professionals to assist in developing the proposal.
The Working Group was comprised of Depaul USA staff and community members.
