Established in 1974, community development organization Impact Services works in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia to help people reenter the workforce and train for jobs, find housing, and build community. Through their JumpStart Kensington Loan Program, Impact Services provide financial resources for the acquisition and construction of 1-2 unit residential properties in the neighborhood.
A graduate of the JumpStart Program, The Intersect is partnering with Impact Services to create more quality affordable housing in the area for community members unable to pay market rates. The Intersect, along with investors 1st Class Properties & Solidarity Consulting, is currently rehabbing two residences, with upgrades including central air, wood floors, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Upon completion, we will turn these refurbished properties over to Impact Services to rent or sell to local residents looking for a beautiful new place to call home.
