Friends Rehabilitation Program (FRP) is a Quaker-related non-profit whose mission is to provide housing and social services for low and moderate income households. Founded in 1961, FRP is governed by Quaker values of caring and respect for every member of the community. Friends Rehabilitation Program is a developer and manager of affordable housing. We currently work in the neighborhoods of Belmont, East and West Poplar, Strawberry Mansion, and University City. FRP partners with neighborhood organizations to build quality, energy-efficient homes for low and middle income first-time homebuyers. Friends Rehabilitation Program specializes in managing affordable housing for the elderly, homeless, disabled, and those living with HIV. It has extensive experience in the management and development of HUD Section 202 and Low-income Housing Tax Credit projects.
FRP’s latest projects are in Philadelphia’s Strawberry Mansion neighborhood where we rehabilitated 10 historic homes in partnership with the community. We have built 24 new and 1 newly restored energy-efficient homes for low and moderate income first-time buyers on North 31st Street. We are rehabbing 47 apartments on 32nd Street employing neighborhood residents. For more information on this project, check out our website at smtownhomes.com .
