Male Involvement Group

In partnership with Acelero, North Philly Project created the Male Involvement Group to provide a safe space and community for fathers raising children while doing the work of self-care and healing.  Through the Male Involvement Group, fathers connect to community resources and various supports needed to parent children in an ever-changing society.

We Kings

We Kings is a men’s support group that opens the door of opportunity for Black men to achieve sustainable brotherhood, stability, and personal success. We Kings is a corporate gathering of men drawing strength from each other’s life experiences and desires for personal greatness. Our mantra “I AM BECAUSE WE ARE” resonates through our gatherings, conversations and fellowships.

Health Disparities

In North Philadelphia health disparities are significant as more than 46% of its residents are entrenched in poverty. The resulting traumas and stressors associated with impoverished communities expose harsh truths of social determinants of North Philadelphia (healthcare access and equity, education access and quality, social and community context, economic stability, and neighborhood and built environment).

As residents look for answers and solutions for lives of wellness, North Philly Project decided to address trauma created through generational poverty, food deserts, lack of quality healthcare, and deficits for career focused workforce development. Through collaborative smart international partnerships with other community keyholders, North Philly Project is offering a wellness initiative as a resource and solution for community wellness in North Philly.
