We first heard of United Philly through our talks with Startup Corps, a year long entrepreneurship program for high school students through which participants start their own businesses and nonprofits. United Philly, as an organization, seeks to act as a bridge among nonprofits in the Philadelphia area, to create mutually productive partnerships and help ensure that organizations working on similar issues learn from each other and help each other grow and succeed. The Frankford CDC believes that through blogging at United Philly, we will be able to further positively promote Frankford as a neighborhood and community.
