The tremendous role of Philadelphia's Recreation Centers is one of the great untold stories of our city. From our youngest friends to our oldest neighbors, Rec Centers throughout the city offer programs and resources that would otherwise be out of reach for many Philadelphians. Last year, Rec Centers provided over 2.8 million meals to children in need. They offered over 700 cultural and educational resources. Yet, despite the significance of these programs, our Rec Centers are chronically underfunded and understaffed. We work with communities to advocate for the expansion of the vital resources that make these programs possible.
