PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 10, 2014 — State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams, members of his family and public officials will dedicate a new facility at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 11, that will further help address homelessness among the Philadelphia area’s veterans and seniors.
Named after the senator’s father – a veteran of the Korean War who was a former state senator and political trailblazer in Philadelphia – the 61-unit Hardy Williams Veterans Center will serve former soldiers in need.
Tomorrow’s dedication ceremony will include a barbeque and provide the public with its first look at the new facility, which will be operated by HELP USA.
Sen. Williams and HELP USA unveiled the designs for the Hardy Williams Veterans Center one year ago during Veterans Day. It is the fourth Philadelphia-based facility to be operated by the national nonprofit organization.
Congressman Bob Brady, Philadelphia City Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, Philadelphia Housing Finance Agency Development Director Holly Glauser, and HELP USA CEO Dr. Thomas Hameline will join Sen. Williams and his family at the dedication.
Brady and the senator are scheduled to speak.
Media coverage is encouraged.
