Together, WE Change Lives!


Founded on a vision of bringing transformation to North Central Philadelphia and beyond, People for People, Inc. (PFP) is a non-profit organization established by Herbert H. Lusk, II that is dedicated to bringing the kind of life-changing assistance to Philadelphians which helps them construct new futures for themselves and their families.

Our Mission

The guiding mission of PFP is to break the vicious, generational cycle of poverty in the lives of economically-challenged residents of Philadelphia by providing them with positive alternatives to drugs, crime, and welfare dependency. Recognizing the complex and inter-connected obstacles facing low-income urban residents, PFP provides support services to residents and links distressed neighborhoods with concerned leadership and available resources. PFP facilitates the development of personal responsibility, accountability and self-reliance.
