To Whom It May Concern,

 Let me advise you, that since we last posted in January 2015 quite a bit has evolved.  While we continue with GED Preparation /Adult Basic Educational Literacy /Computer Training (Basic to Advanced) /Big Read Program / Computer-Electronics Responsible Recycling… We have upgraded to the HVC Shoe Drive Campaign; The Equal Dollars Community Currency Program; along with the HVC Food Cooperative.  We also have a Job Preparation Program underway and we are training people interested in becoming employed with our organization.  In November, 2017 we will introduce Urban Farming and A Citizens Resource Center in Strawberry Mansion.

Building New Community Centers in Urban Environments             Building New (State of the Arts) Community Centers in Urban Cities is another major undertaking of the Harmonious Volunteer Center and our organization has developed a blueprint for successfully achieving new construction, grassroots citizen inclusion, and building community pride.

This undertaking values at 3 million dollars for the New Community Center representing 10% of the overall Park Renovation Project upward toward $25 million.

Temporary Aid To Needy Families (TANF) has been of a major concern at the Harmonious Volunteer Center.  Those parents require training in order to qualify for employment.  Those parents having one or more children and are in need of whatever help or assistance they can receive while they get their lives together.  The Harmonious Volunteer Center has become a distribution partner with the Cradles To Crayons nonprofit organization helping to issue toys, educational books, and clothing for children for needy families .  Children from newborn up to age 12 from needy families qualify to receive these gift packages.  North Penn Civic Association at Chalmers Park (a member organization of the Resident’s Coalition), 2800 North 29th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19132 is involved with the process of bringing joy to these children by providing space in the community center at Chalmers Park called Kids Fun Day.
