Need in Deed

In support of Need in Deed, an organization connecting the classroom with the community, ACHIEVEability Senior Fellow Harold Barrow offered his expertise in the field of homelesseness on Wednesday, February 17th, by speaking to a classroom of more than 30 fourth grade students at D. Newlin Fell School in South Philadelphia. This was the first time that this classroom heard from a community partner after choosing to address homelessness for their annual service-learning topic.


Need for Deed works with over 80 public school teachers around Philadelphia, helping to bring real world learning and resources to their students about social issues selected by the students. This is the third year ACHIEVEability and Harold Barrow have supported the Need in Deed program. We are proud to support such a great program and Philadelphia classroom.
