The Homeless Health Initiative (HHI) is a volunteer health outreach program that provides free healthcare and health-related services to families living in local emergency housing shelters. Dedicated volunteers from HHI offer free, high-quality medical and dental care, health education, and other services to shelter residents in the Philadelphia area.
Fun Friday Art is a therapeutic weekly art program where mothers in shelters find joy, healing, creativity, skills, empowerment and entrepreneurship through classes in art, crafts, jewelry, knitting and, in the future, sewing.
