Northwest Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network
NW Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, meals, and other assistance to homeless families. Volunteers from Arcadia University visit the children once a week assist with homework, play games and do arts and crafts, while the parents attend support and training classes. The weekly interactions provide the children with a sense of consistency seeing the familiar faces of our students at the different shelters that they move to and from every two weeks.
Students interested in participating in this program can contact the Community Service office at 215-572-4000.
