Too many Americans are homeless, hungry, or hurting. Some struggle to get off of welfare or drugs or both.
Others are seniors who can't make it on their own, or children with parents in prison.
In every corner of America, there are people of all ages in need of help.
The Philadelphia Brotherhood Rescue Mission has been helping the homeless and rebuilding lives since 1908.
Dr. Russell Conwell of Temple University was one of the founding fathers of the Philadelphia Brotherhood Rescue Mission; formally known as the Temple Brotherhood Psycho-Therapeutic Institute.
As Pastor of the Baptist Temple, Dr. Conwell saw the need to help men who were migrating to the Philadelphia area who were in need of food and shelter.
