BENEFITING: VISITATION COMMUNITY OUTREACH FOUNDATION
The Community Center at Visitation is located in the Kensington District of Philadelphia. It is the poorest district in all of Pennsylvania and one of the 10 poorest districts and the 2nd hungriest district in America. 80% of the people in Kensington live below the poverty line. Kensington is riddled with poverty, drugs, crime and prostitution. Our goal is to keep kids off the streets and into positive activities!
CCV meets the social, economic and educational needs of over 30,000 people each year through after school programs, sports and recreation, adult education, food pantry which feeds 6000 families each year and much, much more. Our goal is to provide activities which will keep young people off the streets and educate adults so they can become empowered.
