Blog NKCDC Announcing a bigger, better, more beautiful

NKCDC is thrilled to announce the launch of its new website at

Designed by Philly’s own Pixel Parlor, the new site improves access to NKCDC services. Nearly two-thirds of internet searches happen on mobile devices, and is now mobile-friendly. In parts of Kensington and across Philadelphia, one in ten residents speak Spanish at home. Beginning in 2020, the site will be available in Spanish.

The new site also improves NKCDC’s efficiency by allowing us to retire five separate websites, bringing multiple services into one location. Those services include:
