Make Real Change - MakeRealChange.org Real Change Starts with Your Contribution

Give your change to the people who make Real Change.


Giving change to people on the street usually only helps keep them there. Giving to Real Change helps non-profit organizations like Pathways to Housing get individuals who are homeless into their own apartments, offering the services they need to rebuild their lives. Make your donation directly to Pathways to Housing or, if you want to support job opportunities for disadvantaged workers, contribute to the Center City District Foundation.

Sponsoring Organizations

Pathways to Housing

pathwaystohousing.org

Pathways Housing First programs are based on the belief that housing is a basic human right. Pathways believes people should not have to prove that they are "housing ready" by first participating in treatment or by being clean and sober. Instead, Pathways moves people who are homeless and suffer from psychiatric disabilities directly from the streets into apartments of their own, instantly making them part of a community. Once settled in a stable living situation, they successfully engage with the variety of services available to them, such as psychiatric or substance abuse treatment, employment readiness and skills developments, and family reconnection.

Center City District Foundation

The Center City District Foundation is the charitable arm of the Center City District (CCD). A specially trained group of Community Service Representatives encourage and assist people who are homeless in coming off the street and into appropriate facilities where they can find shelter and necessary social services. The foundation also supports job opportunities for disadvantaged workers as well as the Philadelphia Community Court, an innovative, problem-solving court that assists defendants who are homeless and accused of quality-of-life crimes through on-site social services and a program of supervised community sentences.
