How You Can Help

We know community members value their neighborhood and want to be a part of its future. OCD encourages your participation through the sharing of your time, talent, and treasure.


Many opportunities are available for volunteers willing to share their talents and time, particularly in the Visitation Gateway Neighborhood (Kensington). Our staff works closely with the staff of the Cardinal Bevilacqua Community Center, where volunteers are especially valued. Contact us for more information about volunteering with OCD.


Financial donations, however big or small, enhance our work and help bring hope in the communities we serve. You can make a secure donation online via PayPal by clicking the link below. You can also make a contribution writing a check payable to "The Office for Community Development" and mailing it to our office at 2646 Kensington Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19125. All contributions are tax-deductible.

If you are interested in naming OCD in your will or to make a planned gift, please Contact us.
