Together, WE Change Lives!


In 1989, Rev. Herbert H. Lusk, II, deeply grounded in Christian beliefs and principles, founded People for People, Inc. (PFP) with the vision of people helping others. From the very start, PFP and its partners have embraced the journey and have shared in the joys and responsibilities of helping countless Philadelphians and others around the world to change their lives. For over 30 years now, PFP has fought for and with “the least of these” – low-income families, public housing residents, single parents, and those living in vulnerable circumstances – encouraging them to leave behind their dependency upon public assistance, substance abuse, and negativity by completing education, job training, computer skills training, program certification and counseling.

What will People for People, Inc. do next!? The future of PFP depends on YOU! Your time, talent and treasure can make all the difference in the lives of the people we serve. A few simple ways you, your friends, colleagues or family can help are listed below.
