Growing up with his parents and with more than 100 foster brothers and sisters, Jeremy knows firsthand the importance of ensuring everyone has access to the full spectrum of resources required to physically and spiritually thrive, especially having a safe, caring place to live.

Overcoming COVID-Positive Cases While Maintaining the Same Level of Care to Those in Need

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for nonprofits, especially organizations that work directly with vulnerable populations, like Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, the oldest and largest homeless shelter in Philadelphia. While testing and vaccinations have helped slow the spread of COVID-19, the risk for organizations like ours is still high.
