Our Brothers' Place (OBP)

OBP is run in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia and provides emergency shelter for 149 men and supportive services for an additional 50 on a daily basis. Individuals experiencing homelessness receive warm meals and supportive services, taking the first step in accessing housing in the community.

ENTRY-LEVEL PROGRAMS

Individuals who are chronically homeless and struggle with severe and persistent mental illness, serious medical conditions and/or addiction receive food, shelter and referrals to much-needed services. Bethesda Project staff reach out to those most reluctant to enter shelter with tenacious, dignified care and help them transition to housing.
