Pathways to Housing PA struggles to help our program participants who live in poverty to meet their basic needs. Monetary donations are always nice, but there are other things that can help us to help them. The items listed below are always needed and collecting these items is a great project for schools, scouts, businesses and communities of faith. Any of these items can be dropped off during business hours to our offices at 5201 Old York Road, 4th Floor, in Philadelphia. For more information about how you can help, contact our Development Manager, Aaron Brown.
Pathways to Housing PA's Executive Director Appointed to TEDMED Challenge Leadership Team
Christine Simiriglia has been appointed as a National Team Leader for the TEDMED Challenge on Poverty and Healthcare.
The 46 million Americans who live in poverty are measurably less healthy and have far worse health outcomes than the rest of the population. Less certain is how much of these negative health outcomes are directly caused by poverty and how much is caused by other factors. How should we think about the role and impact of poverty within the larger question of health? Your thoughts are vital to TEDMED's Great Challenges in Health and Medicine program.
