Philadelphia residents face many barriers to accessing resources. These include digital, economic, language, literacy, and disability-related barriers. The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened these challenges in our highest-need communities.
The goals of the Community Resource Corps (CRC) are to:
- Connect residents to resources.
- Conduct neighborhood outreach.
- Build the City's capacity for strategic community engagement.
The CRC also serves as a professional development program for its members. AmeriCorps members serve one-year terms of service.
