Impact Services Corporation
Support Individuals, Families, and Communities
Impact Services works to empower people with the skills and resources needed to reach their highest potential.
Since 1974: We have been working in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia to help people reenter the workforce train for jobs, find housing, and build community. Over the last two decades we have also built a continuum of housing services in an effort to end veteran homelessness.
Collective Impact: The foundation of our work lies in our ability to nurture partnerships with other mindful organizations. By aligning missions, resources, and creativity – we’re able to muster the latent energy in our community.
Veterans Services: Impact provides housing for over 200 formerly homeless veterans and for veteran families. Impact uses a “housing first” model to ensure that veterans in need get assistance putting themselves on a path to self-sufficiency.
Community & Economic Development: Impact works with the community to facilitate a broad range of activities including, vacant lot stabilization, repurposing vacant buildings, planning social events, and fostering collective action toward common goals. We also invest in social enterprises and small businesses through the Impact Loan Fund.
Employment & Training: Impact’s workforce development programs will place over 2,000 people into jobs this year, creating stability for individuals and families. We also help people sign up for benefits through BenePhilly, and help inmates and returning offenders get the identity documents they need to apply for employment.
