On June 6th Citywide Community Counseling Inc. hosted their first event since Covid-19 effected us last year. Take Back Our Community event was the first of its kind, aimed to create a safe space for children, as well as clean the surrounding neighborhood, Kensington, of trash and debris. With the help from local partners, volunteers, and the Philadelphia police department, we were able to restore parts of the Kensington area. The event was open to the entire community, as children were able to play games, enjoy water ice, pizza, and pretzels. As always, CityWide provided resources to those seeking mental help services. The event was a great way to kick off the opening of the city of Philadelphia post the Covid-19 shut down. We look forward to many more opportunities to make positive and lasting impacts to the Kensington community in the future.
