The Community Center at Visitation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, located in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. We provide support and access to social services to improve educational and employment opportunities. In addition, our food pantry supplies healthy food options for our patrons suffering from food scarcity. Health screening and mentoring for our at-risk population focuses on cardiovascular, diabetes, obesity and addiction-related afflictions. We want to inspire and provide the tools for individuals to learn news skills and to become better professionals, family and community members. In doing so, we believe that we will share a sense of belonging to a Community we all respect, deserve and love.
We believe that through community and love, we can overcome our neighborhood's most perplexing problems.
We are committed to providing a safe place for community outreach, continued education, and recreation among the diverse cultural communities of Kensington, Philadelphia and its surrounding neighborhoods. Serving as a “Beacon of Hope,” the CCV embraces and celebrates its community with particular regard for nurturing the potential of its youth, senior, and immigrant populations.
Guided by core values of hope, hospitality, community spirit, gospel virtues, preferential option for the poor, and acknowledgement and promotion of the dignity of each person, the Community Center at Visitation responds to the needs of a diverse neighborhood in dire need of assistance.
