How Philly convinced business leaders to be part of the homelessness solution

Seeking a solution to crowded sidewalks outside their storefronts and places of business, corporations have teamed up with the city of Philadelphia to help those facing homelessness. Programs such as Hub of Hope and the Mural Arts project provide people with free showers, laundry services, case management services, and a day of work and wages. Food pantries have also been set up, serving thousands of people and the Ambassadors of Hope team has helped 130 people into permanent housing. Homelessness is still a persistent problem in Philadelphia but the business community has helped alleviate it.
