In 2008, Chosen 300 Ministries opened an additional homeless outreach site on the second floor of Millcreek Baptist Church located at 641 North Preston Street. With the help of five churches and a core group of volunteers, we provide meals to approximately 100-150 homeless and needy individuals every Friday in the West Philadelphia community. Due to limited space, we have now out-grown this location and have recently purchased a building located at 3959-61 Lancaster Ave for $244,000.00 of which we used Capital Campaign funds in the amount of $169,000.00, leaving an outstanding mortgage of $75,000.00.
Upon completion of renovations at the new West Philadelphia site, Chosen 300 will be able to add approximately 7-10 additional volunteer churches, allowing for triple the amount of hot meals to be served. In addition, we will also be able to expand services at this location to include a computer lab, learning lunch sessions, job readiness programs, and health support services.
