Our Mission Within Our Communities
The mission of Projects With Purpose is to empower residents, promote community wealth and revitalize neighborhoods within under-served communities.
What Is A Project With Purpose (PWP)
PWP provides educational programming and on the job training of TFAD students, as well as direct cost of the necessary materials/labor to provide free repairs for qualifying seniors and low income families living in hazardous conditions. PWP also works to complete impactful community initiatives and rebuilding our community from within.
How Do We Serve The Commuity With Projects With Purpose
►1. Mentorship: Over 60% of family households in Northwest Philadelphia are fatherless. Through PWP, our youth are exposed to male role models that provide much needed guidance and support.
►2. Blight Removal: Restores beauty, reduces crime, improves health and builds pride within the community.
►3. Homelessness: When residents and local businesses maintain ownership of the property in the community, there are more opportunities to reduce homelessness through resident programs and affordable housing.
►4. Local Economic Stimulus: PWP serves as a catalyst for economic development by restoring blighted commercial properties therefore attracting businesses and creating jobs.
