A grand-opening ceremony took place last week for Northeast Services Hub, 6434 Castor Ave.
Located in the former Exchange at Oxford Circle thrift shop, the Hub will be home to state Rep. Jared Solomon’s office, Feast of Justice, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, Mural Arts Philadelphia, Family Promise of Philadelphia and Nationalities Service Center.
On hand for the ribbon cutting were Solomon and Rep. Pat Gallagher; Mural Arts executive director Jane Golden; the Rev. Tricia Neale, executive director of the nonprofit Feast of Justice; JFCS CEO Paula Goldstein, who credited chief operating officer Paul Groch for his efforts; Nationalities Service Center deputy director Steve Larin; and Bob Byrne, executive director of Family Promise of Philadelphia (formerly known as Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network).
Neale, whose Mayfair food pantry serves 550 families a week, said the great thing about the Hub is all its “resources and connected resources. This is perfect” ••
