The Embassy Network

November 3, 2015

The Philly Service Co-op has been invited to become part of the The Embassy Network, which is similar to AirBnB but specifically serves co-living communities. It has some really innovative features, like integrating social and cultural events into a calendar visible to potential guests. If you’re interested in traveling and would like to stay in a co-living community sign up for an account at embassynetwork.com/people/register/. Also, if you’re part of a co-living community looking for a culturally aligned room sharing network, check out embassynetwork.com/host/. Thanks so much to Jessy Kate Schingler, one of the creators of the Embassy Network, for allowing us to be a part of this cool new project. PSC’s Embassy Network page can be found at embassynetwork.com/locations/psc/.

Here’s Dallas, Rose and Jon at a block build in North Philly today. Thanks to Jon for hooking us up with Rebuilding Together. Rebuilding Together is an organization that recruits anyone with some basic DIY skills all the up to professional contractors to help fix occupied homes in neighborhoods that need it. We hope to participate in coming months. Check out their website: http://www.rebuildingphilly.org/

PSC Concert featuring The Great Swamps (Matt Horowitz)

October 14, 2015

Last night, PSC had the solo act Matt Horowitz performing on guitar as The Great Swamps. His songs were a unique mix of funny, unassuming and expressive. About ten people came out for the intimate show, and we were grateful to have it take place at the Philly Service Co-op. PSC has a fairly large space on the first floor and is happy to host small gatherings and performance like The Great Swamps. If you’re interested in hosting a small gathering with us, please email reservations@phillyservice.coop. To see more of Matt’s music, check out the links below:
