PPH receives recognition from the Lawncrest Community Association

Posted on: Apr 19, 2019

The Philadelphia Protestant Home (PPH) was recognized at the April meeting of the Lawncrest Community Association (LCA) as the Business of the Month.  PPH received this recognition to demonstrate the LCA’s appreciation of our consistent support of numerous initiatives in the community.  Here are just a few examples of our support with the Lawncrest Community:

  • Major supporter of the Fourth of July Celebration (the only neighborhood fireworks display in the City of Philadelphia)
  • Providing space for meetings and events free of charge to numerous community, church, school and civic organizations
  • Use of PPH Social Hall for Fourth of July Celebration Fundraisers
  • Free Summer Concerts in our air-conditioned Social Hall
  • Providing home meal delivery service through the Northeast Meals on Wheels Program
  • Community access for seniors to the PPH Wellness & Aquatic Center
  • Offering intergenerational and tutoring programs to children in the community
  • Hosting blood drives and an Annual Wellness Symposium
  • Providing Benevolent Care and uncompensated medical care
  • Charitable contributions to local organizations in their support of the community

Our commitment is to reinvest our resources to improve the well-being of not only our residents, but also the larger community. Please take a look at our Annual Report for a full listing of our Community Benefit.

What Residents Say

"In my two years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.….especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of residents Jack & Bernice Segal
