ITAVFoundation “I Care” Outreach

According to the Philadelphia Office of Homeless Services, for the past 5 years there has been a steady increase in the number of people experiencing homelessness in Kensington.

It’s no secret that the homeless community within the Kensington area is egregious. Many homeless individuals are between the ages of 17-69. Some has been reported to have chronic health issue, mental illness, substance and drug addiction.

After witnessing the area and doing research about the homeless population surrounding Philadelphia, ITAVFoundation plans on doing more for those without a home. Especially those that are living on the street, in areas such as Kensington.
