Since opening its doors on September 7th 1963 Saint John’s Hospice has served the needs of homeless and hungry men in the city of Philadelphia.  Providing food, shelter, clothing and counseling, Saint John’s Hospice prides itself in being a community grounded in faith and service, where homeless persons can find dignity, respect, nourishment and opportunities for new beginnings.
