What we do
The Office of Homeless Services works with more than 60 homeless housing and service providers, as well as city, state, and federal governments. Together, we make up Philadelphia’s homeless service system.
This system provides homelessness prevention and diversion aid, as well as emergency and temporary housing, to people who are experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness.
Are you facing homelessness? Contact the Prevention, Diversion & Intake Unit to see if you qualify for help. There are three ways to get in touch with our intake social workers and case managers:
Nothing from July 2, 2022 to October 2, 2022.
