GIVE THEM ROSES WHILE THEY ARE HERE
The last few years have been devastating in Philly.
For BIQTPOC the most recent events highlight the violence and strain that Philly has to face as a community.
We the people can heal, we the people keep each other safe, and we the people are raising dollars outside of the Non-Profit Model to be able to meet our BIQTPOC needs!
Morris Home, is the first residential recovery program in the country to offer comprehensive services specifically for trans- and gender non-conforming individuals. Morris Home has been a steady home for BIPOC trans- and GNC people and a fearless place of LOVE in Philly. After the loss of 2 shared friends and community members in the past 2 weeks.
After all the violence and loss in the past 2 years, NOW is time for Philly to SHOW UP. All funds will be given directly to staff and residents at Morris Home, of whom I am coordinating directly with them. Other issues have also arisen at the program’s current location in Southwest Philadelphia – including the detonation of an explosive device on Morris Home’s front porch, June 23, 2018.
Morris Home participants have expressed increasing concerns for their safety. They need support to act on their own behalf, express their asks and demands.
Right now Morris Home is preparing to move to address the much-needed growth, and expand to provide more. Morris Home will grow from 9-14 beds in the next year. Morris Home is moving to a new location in order to expand services in response to a growing need in Philadelphia. They need you to keep going!
