Our Work

Healthy Housing

We work to provide safe, secure housing for Philadelphia residents through free one-on-one housing advising, home repair programs, energy assistance, and real estate development.

Community Building

We equip block leaders and mobilize residents to build a safe, healthy community. Through interaction with city and state governments, NKCDC gives voice to resident concerns.

Economic Development

We promote local business development to create jobs and community wealth by connecting local startups and businesses with services and funds, and working with the arts as a vehicle for economic stimulation.
