For John,* a youth client of YSRP, violence and tragedy permeated his childhood. At just 10 years old, John’s father was murdered at the hands of a Philadelphia Police Officer, turning his life upside down.
On September 21, 2014, the Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project won the top prize at Philly Stake! Philly Stake is a locally-sourced, recurring dinner in which money is raised for creative & relevant community engaged projects. As a micro granting program, community members become creators.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support YSRP at this wonderful community event.
