Use Your Power Guide

The Use Your Power Guide was an idea hatched by Witnesses to Hunger when the witnesses first began meeting as a group. They envisioned a guide, written woman-to-woman, with advice for people going through similar struggles.

The first installment of this book, The Use Your Power Guide to Housing in Philadelphia, is coming soon. Compiled with the help of Emerson Hunger Fellow Brian Stone, this book combines resource listings with advice on how to advocate for yourself and inspirational stories from people who have been through their own struggles with housing and homelessness. While many of the resources listed are specific to Philadelphia, the advice and wisdom shared are universal.
