Our mission is to motivate, empower, and inspire individuals to live their best lives. With compassion at its core, our approach uses best practices and evidence-based programming to pave the way for personal and community transformation.
What We Do
Nearly three decades ago, Dr. Sylvester Outley founded SELF to deliver drug and alcohol counseling services in the City of Philadelphia shelters. Our initiatives helped establish Philadelphia's emergency housing system and programming for the homeless behaviorally challenged and substance dependent populations. Today, we continue to be at the forefront of its innovation.
