You can participate one of three ways to help raise awareness of Project HOME’s mission to end and prevent chronic street homelessness.
Check-in will open at 8 a.m. for the Race HOME 5k with a start time of 8:30 a.m. Check-in for the 1-mile walk will open at 9 a.m. with a start time of 9:30a.
New for this year: start your own team or set a fundraising goal! Once your registration is set up, you can add one or both of these options!
This event will focus on the important role physical & mental wellness has in an individual’s journey towards permanent and supportive housing. Race participation will help a Project HOME community member on their journey home! Street homelessness greatly impacts a person’s physical and mental health. Project HOME’s Hub of Hope offers a safe place where people can enjoy a warm cup of coffee, shower, wash laundry, see a doctor, meet with a case manager, and begin the process of finding permanent housing. To learn more about the Hub of Hope, please visit our webpage.
The Race HOME is part of this year’s Bring Philly HOME, our annual fundraiser. For more information on the full schedule of events, please visit our webpage: www.projecthome.org/bring-philly-home-2022

The mission of the Project HOME community is to empower adults, children, and families to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, to alleviate the underlying causes of poverty, and to enable all of us to attain our fullest potential as individuals and as members of the broader society. We strive to create a safe and respectful environment where we support each other in our struggles for self-esteem, recovery, and the confidence to move toward self-actualization.
Bring Philly HOME, Project HOME’s signature fundraising event raises crucial funds supporting Project HOME’s outreach teams, connecting with people living on the streets; build more supportive housing for those in need; and providing comprehensive health care, education, and employment opportunities.
