"A Beacon of Hope in Kensington" 30,000 people access the facility and participate in CCV programs each year. The CCV provides a safe place for community outreach, continuous education, and recreation while seeking always to embrace and celebrate the diverse cultural communities of Kensington and its surrounding neighborhoods. In Kensington 80% of the population lives below the poverty level and 47% have not graduated from High School (Philadelphia Inquirer)leaving the community riddled with crime, drugs and prostitution. It is for these reasons that CCV has opened a Community Center in the area. Thanks for your support!!
