Row Houses as of January 2007
Since the October 5th launch of the Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation and the announcement of the rebuilding of fifteen rowhouses in North Philadelphia as part of the PHASE V Homeownership Program with Project H.O.M.E., the progress has been impressive.

Members of the Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation regularly visit the build location. The photo above was snapped in January 2007.

Six months later, on another of the Soul Foundation staff’s visits to the North 23rd Street build site, it was easy to see the continued progress.

The photo to the right was taken in June 2007.

Please visit the PHOTO GALLERY section of this website for more images taken at both the January 2007 and June 2007 walk-thrus.



Homeowners Graduation Photo
The official ‘Graduation Picture’ for the families who will be moving into the renovated rowhouses on the 1800 and 1900 blocks of N. 23rd Street in North Philadelphia. Announced during the October 5, 2006 Press Conference, the reconstruction of these environmentally friendly homes from their former shells was made possible through the Phase V Homeownership Project and the groundbreaking combined efforts of Project HOME, The Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation, Habitat for Humanity and Saturn. Congratulations!
