About

Community Women’s Education Project (CWEP) is a community-based education organization that was founded in 1977 to address the social and economic inequities that affect at-risk families in North Philadelphia. Our mission is to help low-income women in Philadelphia’s neighborhoods improve their life skills, acquire a family sustaining wage, and achieve self-sufficiency by providing a continuum of educational and supportive services in a personalized and welcoming environment. 

For over thirty years, CWEP has served as a gateway to self-sufficiency for 17,300 adults, particularly women, who are vulnerable because of poverty, physical disabilities, behavioral health problems, poor job skills, or limited English language proficiency.  In addition, over 575 children, many with learning disabilities, have been helped to develop literacy skills in preparation for kindergarten.  Our 40,000 square foot historic facility in Kensington is a unique community resource that also houses classes from the Willard Elementary School, Somerset Head Start, and many other non-profit organizations.
