Help USG Host PIHN Families

PIHN is the Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network, which supports families as they strive to work their way out of homelessness.

USG will feed and house three families this summer from Sunday, August 18 until Sunday, September 1. The families will each have a room in our air-conditioned Sullivan Wing and will eat in our Dining Room and will have use during mornings and evenings of bathrooms, the kitchen and the playground.
