The drive will benefit Philadelphia’s Drueding Center, which renews lives and restores hope by working with homeless women and their children to create two generations of self-reliant adults. Founded by the Sisters of the Holy Redeemer Drueding Center in 1987 as Project Rainbow, the organization serves the most vulnerable, helping them recover the dignity of standing on their own. They are unique among Philadelphia’s transitional housing organizations in the length of time they stay involved with families—up to seven years after they leave Drueding Center—and in the quality and breadth of their interconnected programs.
