As an urban ministry, we are excited to share about God's heart for the city. Our hope is to broaden youth's understanding of urban America and global missions, reorganizing that over half the world's people live in cities (and that number is growing). We approach these ideas from a biblical perspective and believe they are important for the lives of teenagers everywhere.
Our programs include construction projects providing no-cost repair and maintenance on homes of elderly, disabled, and single-parent families throughout NW Philly.
We are also equally passionate about education. We have an affordable children's education programs including a preschool, after-school program and summer camp for the neighborhood's children. We have also partnered with Cairn and Eastern Universities to provide scholarships for students entering college.
Along with our programs, The Philadelphia Project has been partnering with great ministries and organizations in Philadelphia through our Mercy Ministry. Some of these partnerships are with Whosoever Gospel, The Table and Share Food Program.
