• Bethesda Project: Bethesda has been CORP's partner in WinterShelter for 25 years, providing intake services for our guests: transportation to and from Bethesda, showers, clean clothes and counseling services. Bethesda Project strives to be the premier provider of housing and services to the abandoned poor in Philadelphia through serving our brothers and sisters with quality and integrity.
• Penn's Village helps older adults, and younger disabled persons, remain living independently, in their own homes, in their familiar neighborhoods by connecting neighbors to neighbors through volunteer-provided personal and home maintenance services such as errands, companionship, transportation, etc.; educational and cultural programs; community resources and services including PV's vetted providers; specialized services such as a caregiver support group; and more.

• Books Through Bars: BTB collects and distributes selected educational books and other reading materials to individual imprisoned men and women as well as prison libraries. Community Outreach Partnership supports this effort by collecting relevant materials and delivering them to the BTB distribution site.
• After School Activities Partnerships: Created in 2002 in response to a civic outcry for help with activities for the city’s youth during the critical unsupervised hours after school, ASAP/After School Activities Partnerships has provided after school recreational and enrichment activities to Philadelphia kids in some of the poorest and most dangerous areas of the city. We are looking for volunteers to lead after school clubs in nearby locations to teach the city’s youngsters the fun of chess and Scrabble, while gaining skills at the same time. You don’t have to be an expert! ASAP provides training for club leaders and all materials.
• Philadelphia Futures: Philadelphia Futures' Sponsor-A-Scholar (SAS) Program provides Philadelphia's public high school students with long-term mentoring, academic support and enrichment activities, college guidance, funds for college-related expenses, and on-going staff support during high school and throughout their college career.
We are looking for committed professionals who have earned a college degree to participate in the support of our students as long-term mentors. Prospective mentors have a strong commitment to education and a desire to give something back to the community through helping low-income, first-generation-to-college students realize their dream of college success.
