From the Executive Director

In 2018, we celebrated our 5th year of operation and accomplished numerous milestones.  We were able to construct a greenhouse with grants from CHOP and Nutritional Development Services; we launched a seven-part Creative Action program on issues of intersectional justice; and, accompanied seven teens and young adults on their journey to college acceptance.  Additionally, in September, we launched Immigration Legal Services, which offers high-quality, low cost support for families in South Philadelphia. I am grateful every single day for the way this community stands with the stranger and widens the circle of compassion. Please come by to visit soon. We’ll have a seat at the table for you!
