|Description of Agency||Founded in 1969 by local residents and clergy, the Southwest Community Enrichment Center (SCEC) is a non-profit, community-based human service organization that provides a broad range of services to the residents of the Kingsessing section of Philadelphia. Our philosophy of service emphasizes both the self-worth of each individual, and the identification and coordination of community resources to address community issues. Recognizing the importance of community involvement, a majority of SCEC's staff, Board of Directors, and volunteers are local residents. Our programs operate out of three row houses nestled in the community and provide programs and services for adults, families, children and senior citizens.
Our mission is to enhance the well being of each child and adult served. We are dedicated to uplifting the quality of life through education, employment opportunities, health and cultural enrichment in the community.
