In the spring of 1995, the Wayne Presbyterian Church of suburban Philadelphia initiated the formation of a network of organizations within the Southwest section of the city. The purpose was to introduce neighboring groups to each other, to build a spirit of cooperation and resource sharing, and to address some of the challenges facing residents of a struggling urban community. In 2010 CityLights became a stand alone non-profit and continues to serve Southwest Philadelphia.

The Common Place

Great opportunity for middle and high school youth in West and Southwest Philadelphia.

The Common Place is running a free trades camp for high-schoolers in Philly. The camp is FREE and runs the week of June 25th, 2018. At the end of the camp, counselors help with summer job placement, and they may receive a scholarship to Williamson College of the Trades. We have 6 slots left.

Learning a trade allows for someone to ALWAYS MAKE A LIVING regardless of the economy or what the government does.

This is a very good opportunity for the youth of our community.

Are you tired of all of those ABANDONED TIRES in your community? A new business, RecycleDelphia is coming to Southwest Philadelphia to address this issue. Please come to the Information session Tonight 2-9-2020 to hear more about it 6 pm at 5400 Grays Avenue (Previously Bartash Printing) The objective of RecycleDelphia is to remediate waste tires that are generated by tire dealers and other businesses that are often find their way to illegal dump sites, including in our parks and woodland areas, waterways, sidewalks and roadsides. Under bridges and overpasses, tires are almost always the most prevalent waste. RecyleDelphia will eliminate illegal tire disposal by; • Identifying newer sites and surveying the number of tires and other waste present, RecycleDelphia will plan the removal of this waste, • Through community involvement, • Engaging with other recycling and waste removal companies • And working with the City of Philadelphia, RecycleDelphia will be a champion of cleaner communities, starting in the hardest hit areas in the city.
There are 3 ways you can join the Illuminati, the most powerful and exclusive secret society on the planet. 1) You can be born to it, 2) you can be in its service, or 3) you can force your way in. Born to it: The easiest method of joining the all-powerful by far is being born into a wealthy family who are already prime movers and shakers in world affairs. Serve it: If you aren’t wealthy at birth, it’s possible for you to join the Illuminati by becoming part of its machinery for world control. Take it: If you refuse to be subservient to anyone, then there’s only one way for you to join, you must grab it! You must force your way into the Illuminati.for more details chat the grand master on whatsapp with this number +1(760)914-4429
