Harrisburg, March 8, 2018 – On Friday, March 9th, Sen. Sharif Street will present a $1 million redevelopment assistance grant to WES Corporation to assist with the development of a state-of-the-art medical facility and business service hub.

“For well over two decades WES Corporation has been a hub for behavioral health and human services in Philadelphia with a keen focus on our most vulnerable neighborhoods plagued by high crime rates, unemployment and a profound lack of access to vital resources,” said Senator Street. “The viability of countless communities is inextricably linked to their success.  I am proud to assist in marshalling funds to bolster their efforts in the development of a new state-of-the-art medical facility and business service hub.”

The new facility will house behavior and physical health services, a daycare facility, and administrative offices. The grant funding is through the Redevelopment Assistance Capitol Program (RACP).
