Igniting Purpose in Youth
Impact at Cobbs Creek
The Cobbs Creek Foundation (CCF) is deeply committed to enriching the lives of young people. To further our commitment to investing in the future of Philadelphian youth, the CCF has partnered with the Impact Center—a non-profit created by lifelong educators dedicated to igniting purpose in our youth—to create Impact at Cobbs Creek. Together we are building a community informed state-of-the-art Education and Community Engagement Center designed to bring resources to the children of the surrounding communities of West Philadelphia and Upper Darby.
