Program Goals and Objective Drueding Center breaks the relentless cycle of poverty among homeless families by impacting two generations. Healing takes time. We have implemented the Sanctuary Model® to promote safety and recovery from chronic stress and adversity. Our goal is to ensure that all of our families have the skills and resources necessary to live independently and reach their individual measure of success. Simply put, “it works”– over 1,998 families with 4,452 children served since 1987 agree that Drueding Center is the place “Where Hope comes aliveTM.”

Requirements All women must participate in an activity that will lead to self-sufficiency that may include: employment, education, employment training, drug/alcohol recovery, behavioral health and/or a life skills program. In addition, they are required to pay 30% of their income for transitional housing fees and to save 20%.

On-site Services The following services are offered to families in residence and to those who “graduate” to permanent housing through the After Care Program: · Residential Services: intensive case management, goal planning, and clinical counseling for children and adults · Education/Community Services: life skills training, housing assistance, case management for program graduates and other formerly homeless families ·

Youth Services: a full-day, licensed Child Care Center serving infants through school age children with Head Start, after school program with a summer camp, and a rating of STAR 3 from the Keystone STARS Program

· Green Light Food Pantry: provides fresh, healthy foods and education to residents, graduates, community and staff

Letter from the Executive Director and Board Chair Dear Friends of Drueding Center, Our annual report assesses our organization’s health and informs our future. Moreover, it’s a tangible demonstration of truly meeting our mission to care, comfort, and heal. The number of families who need our services is ever-increasing, but we are poised to respond to their needs and meet the challenges ahead. As Philadelphia’s first transitional housing program for women and children, Drueding Center has developed a comprehensive program that meets the needs of both generations of our young families. We acknowledge that healing takes time, and preserve our families’ achievements through an extensive After Care program. Over the past 26 years, we are proud to report that we are a program that works; 100% of our families actively engaged in After Care maintain permanent housing and independence three years after exiting our program. While the ultimate goal is to be “put out of business” and eliminate family homelessness, short of that, we strive for organizational excellence. Fiscal year 2013 was a momentous one, with the following developments: · Grand Opening of the Green Light Food Pantry – providing fresh healthy choices to our families · Two new board members, including Drueding Center Residential Program graduate Nicole Hines · Action steps in our Strategic Plan, furthering our programmatic excellence · Creating a Financial Sustainability Plan – stabilizing our fiscal stewardship We’ve devoted our professional service and spiritual commitment to the families of Drueding Center. We know we are not alone in this steadfast dedication. We are grateful for friends like you, who are determined to break the cycle of homelessness among women and their children in Philadelphia. Together, we make Drueding Center the place Where Hope comes aliveTM. Sincerely,

Anne Marie Collins, Executive Director

Green Light Food Pantry The need for food assistance among our families previously exceeded our existing resources. In response, a pantry start-up committee began meeting in May 2012, completing preliminary research and planning. Partnerships with the Food Trust and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Nutritional Development Services were secured and in October of 2012, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger chose Drueding Center as one of two organization sites to host their “Green Light Food Pantry” pilot program. This exciting project provides much-needed relief in increasing access to healthy food choices to both our clients and the surrounding community in need, augmented by an educational component. Our families are empowered to select their own food, and make healthier choices in the process. Among the selection: low-fat milk and yogurt; fresh fruits and vegetables; lean proteins, such as canned salmon, frozen chicken, fresh eggs, low-sodium legumes, and whole-grain pasta and fresh bread. We hope to expand its reach beyond the 50 participating families in the near future.
