CCRA is a non-profit, volunteer-led civic association that represents the residents of Center City West, from the west side of Broad Street to the Schuylkill River, and from the south side of JFK Boulevard to the north side of South Street.
We got started in 1947,and have been working to make Center City a great place to live, work, and play ever since. CCRA tackles a wide variety of projects and issues, ranging from zoning to sidewalk cleaning to helping support and improve neighborhood schools, and much more.  For more information, click here.

CCRA activities are supported almost entirely by member fees and event sponsorships.  For more information about how you can join or sponsor CCRA, click here.
