On Thursday, December 21, 2017, Pond Lehocky volunteered with Project HOME, a Philadelphia-based housing and learning center that helps adults, children, and families break the cycle of homelessness by providing housing and educational resources. Attorneys and staff joined with the shelter to prepare and serve a hot meal for the women and children living at the Women of Change shelter in Fairmount.
Project HOME leads Philadelphia in rebuilding low-income neighborhoods and advocating for positive public policies for low-income and homeless persons. They encourage personal growth, well-being, and self-sufficiency with a focus on moving to permanent housing. Women of Change, one of their many Philadelphia locations, provides housing to 25 women and their children, with a focus on women with documented serious mental illnesses.
Staff enjoyed preparing food, handing out poinsettias, playing bingo, and talking with the women living at the shelter.
“I had a wonderful time volunteering with Project HOME. I enjoyed sitting down to talk with the women to get to know them and hear their stories, and I was especially glad to see how much the women liked the poinsettias we brought,” said staff volunteer Noriette. “I was proud to spend the holidays giving back to our community.”
