How Can I Help?


URDC cannot continue its work without you. We do not accept any government funding for our programs – all financial support comes from member faith communities, board members, charitable foundations, corporations and individuals like you committed to our community. And your generosity has an immediate impact – 92% of all donations go directly to fund repairs for senior and low-income families.

Please make a donation to URDC via PayPal by clicking the link below or via mail by sending your check or money order, payable to Urban Resources Development Corporation, to 6001 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19144.  All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.


URDC can’t do it alone! To serve more people in northwest Philadelphia, we collaborate with a variety of partners – churches, community organizations, non-profits, and individuals – to complete more housing projects and help more people in need. To volunteer as an individual or to volunteer your church/organization to work with URDC, click on the link below.
