Francis House of Peace

Francis House of Peace is a 94-unit affordable housing and retail mixed-used development in the Chinatown neighborhood of Philadelphia. The development was built on a blighted piece of vacant land that was a destabilizing influence in this otherwise vibrant neighborhood. The project is a unique partnership between the Chinatown Community Development Corporation and Project HOME, creating an innovative multi-cultural residence for formerly homeless adult men and women and the Chinatown community at large. Located in Center City near transit and services, the residents will have ready access to the ample supportive services in central Philadelphia. The project was financed by Low Income Housing Tax Credits, with private funding from the Middleton Initiative, and was built on donated land from the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority.
