Our Impact

Impact100 Philadelphia’s goal is to provide high-impact grants that reach under-served populations, raise the profile of lesser-known nonprofits, and highlight unmet needs in the region. Through grant-making, we invest in grantees, partner with them, pay attention to their concerns, become familiar with their programs and services, and the communities they serve. In return, grantees assure us that our process inspires them to think bigger and more strategically about the work they do.

    Since their founding in 1991, Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network (PIHN) has moved 325 families—910 individuals— from homelessness to stability.  The PIHN program provides assessment and referrals, emergency housing, supportive service, and transitional housing. Equipped with new skills and relationships, 92% of their families do not return to shelter programs after their PIHN experience.  PIHN offers a safe and child-friendly alternative to more chaotic public shelter settings, allowing families to remain intact. Because they are small, they accommodate intact couples, single father households, adolescent boys, as well as single women with children. They have a strong emphasis on taking a holistic approach to rebuilding from homelessness.
