Drueding Center was founded by the Sisters of the Holy Redeemer in 1987 to help create two generations of self-sufficient adults. Since 1987 hundreds of families have been touched by Drueding Center, by living in its 30-apartment residential building, attending its licensed child care center, and by receiving the comprehensive case management necessary to become truly independent. Noteworthy among programs for the homeless, Drueding Center follows graduates for seven years after they leave the residential program, offering the long term support that ensures success.
Scanlon serves in an additional capacity at the organization as Chair of Drueding Center’s Board of Directors. Scanlon will serve as leader of the Drueding Center’s 25th Anniversary Gala committee as chair of this important and exciting event celebrating a notable milestone for the philanthropic organization.
In addition to serving on Drueding Center’s Board of Directors, Scanlon is a member of the executive committee of Women’s Way, a funding advocacy and education organization for women in the Greater Philadelphia Region. She is also a member of the Forum of Executive Women, a leadership organization for female executives in Greater Philadelphia.
Drueding Center, a transitional housing program in Philadelphia, serves more than 400 homeless and formerly homeless families per year through transitional housing, case management and a licensed child care. Drueding Center builds lives and renews hope by working with homeless women and their children to create two generations of self-reliant adults. For more information, visit www.druedingcenter.org.
