Welcome to Overbrook!

Established in 2018

We are Overbook West Neighbors (OWN), a community development corporation serving the Overbrook community of West Philadelphia. We are a partnership of concerned community stakeholders – neighbors, business leaders, faith leaders, everyone Overbrook – all working together to keep our Overbrook neighborhood safe, clean, and organized. Our target area is bordered by 56th Street (east), 63rd Street (west), Lancaster Avenue (north) and Lansdowne Avenue (south).

OWN focuses on enhancing commerce on the Upper Lancaster Avenue Business Corridor, working with residents and stakeholders to improve our quality of life, and serving as the Registered Community Organization (RCO) to address all zoning concerns.

We are proud of the history and the place that Overbrook holds in Philadelphia. A stable middle class community of neighbors who work very hard, own their homes, raise their children and take pride in where they live. We Are #Overbrook Proud!

If you want to join us, have some resources you’d like to share or have any questions please feel free to contact us today. We are especially interested in ways we can partner with corporations, business, education and community organizations to create positive change in our Overbrook community.
