“Our philosophy is a "hand up, not a handout." As a private, non-profit organization, Homeless Solutions has been helping the homeless and working poor in our community since 1983. We are unique in what we do. It's not just about providing a warm meal and a place to sleep. Our goal is to give those who we serve the tools and surrounding they need to rebuild their lives and become self-sufficient. What sets our non-profit apart from others is our Continuum of Housing through our Emergency Shelter, Transnational Housing Program (THP), Mt. Kemble Home, and Affordable Housing.” Homeless Solutions, Inc.
