Join women from all over the country from May 5 – 7 , 2017 for this life changing weekend of learning about other cultures while staying in a unique urban environment in a latino neighborhood of Philadelphia, serving women in the areas around Urban Hope Training Center and Community Church, and ministering to the homeless in the heart of one of our nation’s largest and poorest cities by putting together packages for them and handing them out. The weekend will culminate with a service project of preparing a special dinner and “spa” time for women from the community.
