Mayor Jim Kenney announced the launch of the Philadelphia Eviction Prevention Project, a new set of services for tenants facing eviction. This effort will reduce the number of evictions and provide more resources to tenants in danger of losing their home, helping to prevent homelessness in Philadelphia.
"Evictions hurt families and communities," said Mayor Kenney. "Eviction increases rates of unemployment, makes it harder for children to succeed in school, destabilizes neighborhoods and increases shelter costs. This new project is an important step in strengthening the safety net for tenants. It is a great example of the change we can make when we as a city come together to address tough problems."
