Center City Residents' Association

CCRA is your neighbors.  Join us!

We are a non-profit, volunteer civic group. Our mission is to preserve, enhance and celebrate Center City living. Our footprint runs from Broad St. to the Schuylkill River and from South St. to JFK Blvd.

We got started in 1947, halting a plan to rip up Rittenhouse Sq. to build a parking garage underneath.  We’ve been working to make Center City a great place to live ever since.

We work on projects, large and small: parks, schools, tree planting, clean sidewalks, neighborhood safety, recycling, community events, and more. 

CCRA activities are supported almost entirely by member fees and events.  Memberships are available for residents, seniors, students, local businesses and more.  Click for more information.
