Neighborhood help desk and catalyst for community engagement & action in the South Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia

About SKCP

Who we are

South Kensington Community Partners (SKCP) is a place-based organization in South Kensington, Philadelphia. We have two roles:

1.       We’re the neighborhood “help desk”
2.      We catalyze community engagement and action.

Our mission is to connect our community to resources and opportunities, the land, and each other. We act as, and encourage others to become, engaged stewards of the neighborhood. We advocate for responsible development that builds upon the physical, social and economic fabric of the neighborhood.

Our organizational boundaries, and those of the neighborhood, span from Girard to Berks, and from Front to 6th.
