Business as Usual for the Men in Blue Amid Covid-19 Pandemic!
Despite these troubling times, the men at RWA continue to work on the issues that rendered them homeless and struggling with addiction and/or recidivism. Their training experiences are considered essential functions of the City, and they remain committed to keeping streets in Philadelphia clean as they work on self improvement. Your contribution is a symbol of your belief in them, and we are so grateful to you for this support.
Ready, Willing & Able (RWA) Philadelphia breaks the cycles of homelessness, addiction, and criminal recidivism by providing work-life experiences through occupational training, housing acquisition, and comprehensive support services to homeless individuals.
Since 2001, RWA has helped hundreds of homeless adults graduate into lives of self-sufficiency by attaining full-time work, securing independent housing, and maintaining sobriety. Ready, Willing & Able trainees, often referred to as the "men in blue" — because of their trademark blue uniforms — work to rebuild their lives and work to keep many of Philadelphia's parks, sidewalks, public spaces and facilities clean — making the "City of Brotherly Love" a better place for all.
