Community Center at Visitation
The Community Center at Visitation (CCV) is committed to provide a safe place for community outreach, continuous education, and recreation among the diverse cultural communities of Kensington and its surrounding neighborhoods. Serving as a “Beacon of Hope,” the Center embraces and celebrates this community with particular regard for nurturing the potential of its youth, senior, and immigrant populations.
Over 30,000 people access CCV services each year. Kensington district, where the Center is located, is the poorest district in all of Pennyslvania and the10th poorest district in all of America. In addition, Kensington is the 2nd hungriest district in the United States and with all of these social obstacles, Kensington is riddled with crime, drugs and prostitution.
CCV provides an alternative "safe place" for children to play in our indoor gymnasium and outdoor playground and a place for adults, to meet,exercise, learn and make their community a better place to live.
