Message From Executive Director
Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who was found guilty of all charges for the murder of George Floyd has allowed an out pouring of tremendous relief for many.

Although we still find ourselves in a time of unrest, we acknowledge and understand that there is still much that needs to be done to address the issues around systemic racism and bias that continues to plague our communities and society on a whole.

Darby Borough Community Development Corporation recognizes and acknowledges the distrust, pain, frustration and anger that this has caused for our community and looks to be on the forefront parterning with Darby Borough and surrounding municipalities to educate and provide opportunities for all that reflect positive change. We appreciate and also recognize the dedication, hard work and commitment of our first responders and public servants. As we move forward in this endeavor, The Board Of Directors and I welcome all who wish to join us in working towards these goals. We look forward to hearing from you. I can be reached at 610-586-0867 or 484-486-0028 by phone or feel free to stop in our office at 1001 Main Street, Darby Free Library 1st Floor , Darby Pa 19023. WE NEED YOU!

Congratulations to MR. ERIC T. SMITH, graduate of the Penn Wood High School Class of 2009 and Kutztown University in 2015! Eric wrote a children's book geared toward teaching children and teens age 6-16 about finance and how to build generational wealth! 😃 The book is entitled, "Melan and Max's Choices with Money." As a teacher, he noticed there is a lack of books in this area, appropriate for children, and decided to write one. Great job! #PennWoodProud

Congratulations To Darby Borough’s New Chief Of Police Joseph Gabe.

Could the CDC do something similar? Philadelphia is launching a new low-interest loan program that provides homeowners as much as $25,000 to fix up their aging homes, Philadelphia Inquirer’s Caitlin McCabe reports. The Healthy Rowhouse Project, a local advocacy program that worked with the city to create the Housing Preservation Loan Program, found in 2014 that while “54 percent of Philadelphia’s homes could be repaired for $10,000 or less, many residents do not have those funds” or credit score. The gap amplifies a small problem, like “Installing a grab bar for a senior [for] $50,” into a major health and safety problem such as “a broken hip [for] $50,000.” The city has dedicated $40 million to the new loan program, which will be housed under the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority.
