Breakfast by breakfast, coffee by coffee, the Terminal’s homeless outreach worker is building trust with the people who have nowhere else to go but Philadelphia’s iconic market.
There’s John Silvetti, whom Giuliana calls her “paisan,” who makes his bed in the tunnel outside the Convention Center and spends mornings at a table by Beiler’s bakery. There’s Richard, who has Tourette’s syndrome and whose tics make it difficult for him to spend the night in shelters. He passes his days at a table by the center court statue of Philbert the Pig.
