Loving our cities



Edit Template


Does your brand or organization care about impacting societal change by addressing systemic barriers compromising the quality of life in distressed communities where we live, work, serve, and worship—in the greater Philadelphia region?
Let’s work together.

Through civic engagement, community programming, education, and workforce development. We believe we can be critical to the efforts in advocacy, dismantling institutional and systemic impediments such as racial, ethnic and income disparities that compromise the quality of life of historically marginalized communities struggling to equitably access nutrient-rich food, healthcare, housing, education, employment, and economic opportunities.

We’re uniquely positioned to bring your work and commitment to life—through high-impact content driving outlets, video, and live and virtual events.

Perfecting Chords

A free, after-school music program offered weekly from September through April to public school elementary students designed to develop a love of music and a greater sense of connectedness amongst those served.

Millennial Labs

U.S. Census Bureau data shows that 47 percent of New Jerseyans aged 18 to 34 years live with mom and dad (or one of the two)which is the highest percentage among the 50 states. In a time of rising student debt, housing costs and other expenses, an estimated 884,000 of the state’s 1.87 million residents in that age group share living space with parents due to the inability to absorb high housing costs, rising costs in many other areas, and a very challenging job market. To address this issue, Loving Our Cities piloted Millennial Labs in 2020, a workforce development initiative designed as a pathway for young adults to obtain paid, practical experience to aid in their personal and professional development

A Woman’s Business

International outreach made up of dynamic women from all walks of life intersecting race, cultures, faiths, professions, generations and perspectives to restore the purpose, power, and position of women and girls through service. Our speakers’ bureau conducts image, professional development, budgeting and job-readiness workshops at women’s shelters and transitional housing facilities in our region and abroad, offering Think Pink depression support an our annual Power TO BE Tea mobilizing women and girls to change the perception and restore the position of women and girls around the world.


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic that compounded the urgent crisis of food insecurity in South Jersey, Loving Our Cities partnered with the Food Bank of South Jersey to retrofit a 9,000-square-foot warehouse on the campus of Perfecting Plaza to serve as a Food Distribution HUB.
