Morris Home Relocation Campaign
The Morris Home Relocation Campaign will support RHD Morris Home’s move to a new and bigger location in Philadelphia. Morris Home, the first residential recovery program in the country to offer comprehensive services specifically for trans- and gender non-conforming individuals, is moving to a new location in order to expand services in response to a growing need in Philadelphia.
In addition, after recent incidents at the program’s current location in Southwest Philadelphia – including an explosive device detonated on RHD Morris Home’s front porch June 23 – many Morris Home participants have expressed increasing concerns for their safety. A move to address the much-needed growth of RHD Morris Home will also address those concerns.
RHD Morris Home is a residential drug and alcohol treatment program serving the transgender community located in southwest Philadelphia, and is the only program of its kind in the country. RHD founded RHD Morris Home in 2011.
“RHD Morris Home is the only inpatient rehab specifically for the trans community, and now more than ever it’s important that people have a space they can define as their own and know that they are safe,” Morris Home director Laura Sorenson said.
