WHAT WE DO

We provide the community with opportunities to learn, grow and develop into citizens who are ultimately responsible for changing their environment. Our goal is to introduce new programs and concepts that will be embraced by all the local residents and then shared among their families and friends.  CCV is a “safe place” for children and youth to grow into outstanding adults.

OUR COMMUNITY

The Kensington District in Philadelphia is the poorest District in all of Pennsylvania and it is one of the 10 poorest Districts in all of America.  Likewise, Kensington is the 2nd hungriest District in the USA and 70% of the children are obese which leads to development and social problems among the youth.

Crime in Kensington is triple the national average and it is considered the “Heroin Capital” of America.  The neighborhood is riddled with crime, drugs and prostitution.
