Hub of Hope
New Daytime Home for Philadelphians Without a Place to Live Opening in January 2018
A new facility is under construction in Center City Philadelphia that is designed as a bridge for homeless people who aren’t ready to go to a shelter. They’re transforming an 11,000 square foot former police station near Suburban Station into the new Hub of Hope.
The hub will serve the homeless population that chafes at the rules in shelters, said John Middleton, Philadelphia Phillies managing partner. “It’s not a commitment the way entering a shelter is, so I think we will get many more people into shelters and on that ladder to independence and stability and self-reliance,” he said.
