A Message from Our Team

Over the last six years of our operation, the world around Aquinas Center has change significantly. While some changes have been good, such as a new public library and recreation space nearby, others have been challenging. The broken immigration system continues to be a source of heartache, separation, and confusion for many local families. We invite you, through Encounter visits and by volunteering, to come alongside our South Philadelphia community to advocate for just reforms to immigration policy and for the resources we need to offer legal services, education programs, creative action workshops, and more.
