The Mission of
The Welcome Project PA

The Welcome Project PA strives to be a diverse, safe place for marginalized and vulnerable populations and seeks to bring about positive social change to improve the quality of life for these individuals and families in Greater Philadelphia.

We envision a world in which all people are welcomed just as they are.

We provide educational resources, support groups, social activities and events, advocacy, interfaith learning and cooperation, and LGBT+ friendly, trauma-informed therapy, healing, and counseling. We serve newcomers to the US, Spanish-speaking communities, refugees, vulnerable faith communities, LGBTQ+ communities, and people living in poverty who lack the basic necessities.

La Misión del Proyecto de bienvenida PA

WPPA se esfuerza por ser un lugar diverso y seguro para las poblaciones marginadas y vulnerables y busca generar un cambio social positivo para mejorar la calidad de vida de familias e individuos en el Área Metropolitana de Filadelfia.

En WPPA, brindamos recursos educativos, grupos de apoyo, eventos sociales, abogacía, aprendizaje y cooperación interreligiosos, terapia psicológica, y asesoramiento para la comunidad LGBT+. Atendemos a recién llegados a los EE. UU., comunidades de habla hispana, refugiados, comunidades religiosas vulnerables, comunidades LGBTQ+ y personas que viven en pobreza y carecen de las necesidades básicas.
