Welcome to SREHUP
The Student Run Emergency Housing Unit of Philadelphia (SREHUP) is an initiative shared by Philadelphia area college students to help empower positive changes in the lives of Philadelphians experiencing homelessness.
We run two emergency housing units in downtown Philadelphia during the months of November to April. SREHUP completes this work in partnership with amazing Philadelphia area churches and social service organizations, namely Project H.O.M.E. and Foyer of Philadelphia.
