Depaul USA’s first program, Depaul House, is a 27-room recovery house for men in Philadelphia. All referrals originate with the Philadelphia Office of Addiction Services (OAS). This program is innovative in its employment-focused approach to help men move out of homelessness. It seeks to achieve systemic change: breaking the cycle of poverty by working with people who are living on the margins and integrating them into the community.

Staff work with residents to identify goals that will help them maintain their tenancy. St. Raymond’s House, is located in the East Mount Airy neighborhood and hosts an on-site medical clinic one day per week staffed by students from Drexel University College of Medicine.
