Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and The Office of Homeless Services have announced a new effort to crack down on panhandling, address chronic street homelessness and streamline outdoor meal services at the vast amount of shared public spaces throughout the city including transit stations, plazas and streets.

 

AthenianRazak is part of a public-private workgroup comprised of more than a dozen leaders from the business, hospitality and civic communities will partner with leaders in the Mayor’s administration to strategize and take action to ensure that public spaces in Philadelphia can be utilized safely, comfortably and with dignity and respect.
