Homelessness in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Inquirer recently posted an in-depth collection of articles and resources on homelessness in their city. This are wonderful resources for any groups getting ready to serve with CSM in Philadelphia!
Just a little preview - here's a great quote by Philadelphia's new mayor (Michael Nutter) on neighborhood opposition:

"There has to be a general understanding with citizens of the city that leper colonies went away a long time ago. These are fellow Philadelphians who need help. These are somebody's niece or nephew; somebody's parents; somebody's son or daughter. These are human beings who need help."
