PHA is working to help the fire victims and survivors

PHA is shaken by the unimaginable loss of life during the tragic fire on January 5, 2022 that claimed 12 Philadelphians, including 8 children. This is a time to band together to help all those in need.

Community resources and offers of support for the fire victims can be made by calling 215-684-5300 or emailing [email protected].

Several organizations are accepting monetary donations that will go to the families for immediate needs. Always check out a charity before making a donation. You will find a list of some organizations currently raising funds for the survivors and their families at Billy Penn’s website. The United Way is making grants through their Rapid Response fund to the Community Legal Services of Philadelphia and the Uplift Center for Grieving Children.

As the families identify the resources they need to move forward, we will update you here and let you know how to help.

Thank you for your concern and desire to support the Philadelphians impacted by this terrible fire.

We need decent, affordable housing in Philadelphia. Now is the time to raise our voices, for the sake of all the city’s children.
