August 29, 2011
The newly opened Mother Teresa House at North Church Street offers independent living in a residential setting for people with HIV/AIDS. More than 80 people attended the Aug. 22 dedication of the 5,723-square-foot home, including Rep. John Carney (D-Del.) and Jane C.W. Vincent, regional director of the Philadelphia office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The house and furnishings cost more than $1 million. Of that amount, HUD provided $630,000. The house is built on three lots, and its interior was designed for comfort and practicality.
