After 23 years in it's place of origin, SIloam has found a new home. We are no longer located at 1133 Spring Garden Street. Instead, we have moved up the street to the 11th Street Family Health Center (850 N 11th Street/11th and Parrish). 

While we are sad to see this door close, the move has brought us endless possibilities and resources. The new facility has their own activities that our participants are more than welcome to attend, freely. There is a full operating gym open to the public. And we can't forget the new sense of community that it will bring.

All of us, by nature, are spiritual.  It is innate in each of us, regardless of our age, race, religion or non-religion.

Spirituality was in existence since the beginning of creation.  Religion came much later, seeking to nurture and celebrate spirituality.  Sometimes it does, and sometimes it does not.

Spirituality means relating in ways that are mutually life giving.  It embodies and celebrates our inter-connectedness, not only with others, but also with nature, with our very self, with higher power….however one knows that to be, and with those who have gone before us, and those who will come after us.

Spirituality is a lived experience, a conscious involvement in the project of life integration via self-transcendence toward the ultimate value one perceives.

Spirituality’s ultimate purpose is integration, ever in ways that are mutually life-giving.


Spirituality: the quality of being concerned with the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things.



Founded in August of 1995 by Sister Bernadette Kinniry and Father Don Reilly, Siloam was born out of a conviction that achieving health requires a holistic approach: to successfully beat illness, one must invest in comprehensive wellness. Through a collaborative planning process involving over sixty community members and stakeholders, Siloam has emerged as a truly unique provider of mind/body/soul to support to those living with HIV/AIDS in the Philadelphia area by addressing the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being, as well as the soul of persons living with and or affected by the disease. We believe that each person has a right to their own beliefs and that, to best help them, we must support their unique search for meaning.
