The Philadelphia Leadership Foundation (PLF) brings together local faith and community leaders, churches, social service groups, and other organizations to tackle the most difficult problems facing the poor in Philadelphia neighborhoods. The Healing Communities (HC) program supports Stations of Hope in thirty congregations in Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD. HC guides the congregations' creation of one-to-one, group and team mentoring programs that employ innovative community programming to address the needs of black males alienated from the mainstream of society.
