About PHILADELPHIA INTERFAITH HOSPITALITY NETWORK

Since our founding in 1991, Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network (PIHN) has moved 325 families—910 individuals— from homelessness to stability. We have grown our network further with the expansion of our network into Northeast Philadelphia in 2012.

The PIHN program provides assessment and referrals, emergency housing, supportive service and transitional housing. Equipped with new skills and relationships, 92% of our families do not return to shelter programs after their PIHN experience.
