The Mike Hinson Resource Center

In remembrance of former SELF, INC. President, and CEO Michael Hinson, who passed away 
August 2022, the Board of Directors of SELF, INC. named its new social resource
center the Mike Hinson Resource Center. The center, located at 1701 Lehigh Avenue,
provides a 24-hour respite for approximately 50 homeless participants. In addition
to offering programming during the day and After-Hours intake services for single men, the center has a computer lab to assist with education and professional needs for participants. Also, individuals can wash cloths, shower, and have access to light refreshments. Under Hinson’s leadership, the center is a crowning achievement in a rich legacy of accomplishments in his role as the former President and CEO of SELF, INC., that include:

  • reducing the deficit of the organization

  • doubling the revenue for the organization

  • increased programming for clients and providing cutting-edge

housing programs​ including permanent supportive housing


Mike leaves a 30-year legacy of activism and advocacy. A host of broad-based Philadelphians have
benefited from his tireless efforts on behalf of voiceless communities—particularly issues concerning the LGBTQ community.
