Ruth is an older woman living in Germantown, experiencing chronic pain, unable to climb stairs, and in a home needing repair. She is alone, hungry, and can’t meet her basic needs on her own. Looking to her community, a friend refers her to a local organization working to meet the needs of those living in deep poverty. Ruth makes her way to the organization, receives a warm meal, and is introduced to a staff member who helps connect her to additional resources. Through the provision of social and legal services, Ruth secures medical and prescription benefits allowing her to receive the health care needed to address her pain, and she partners with legal services to reopen a claim on her home for the much-needed repairs to be completed. This organization changed the trajectory of Ruth’s life and provided her an opportunity to live with dignity and happiness.

Living in challenged conditions, with limited resources, individuals in our community are often left to make choices between feeding themselves, receiving needed medical attention, and safe housing. As a foundation, we are positioned to support organizations like the one mentioned above, that are building pathways to healthier, sustainable lives. YOUR support makes it possible to continue working towards securing healthy equity in Northwest Philadelphia!
