None of us are home until all of us are home. That’s the powerful slogan at Project HOME, a non-profit with a mission to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. This week on BetterWorldians Radio, we’re speaking with Laura Weinbaum from Project HOME about the ways the non-profit is helping to change lives in the Philadelphia area and how listeners can help make the holidays brighter for those experiencing homelessness.
