John Gloucester House

RSSAs part of the Presbyterian Community Ministries of Delaware Valley (PCMDV), John Gloucester House serves as the host for the Rearing Successful Sons (RSS) program in South Philadelphia’s Point Breeze neighborhood. RSS builds resilience through human connection in African American males ages 9 -17.

History and data show that a significant pocket of Philadelphia’s youth, i.e. African American males, are in need of special attention and stronger pathways to upward mobility. The multiracial volunteers working in support of RSSM are taking unprecedented action by making this pledge to the city’s children: Work hard, study, and acquire life skills and leaders who will address systemic racism and opportunity gaps so your future has no limits.
