We believe in community, purposeful living, love, respect, diversity, and beauty.

J-centrel is home to community-driven residents and businesses who strive to make their neighborhood, Philadelphia, and society better. Our Good Neighbor program offers up to $100 off the monthly rent for residents who volunteer with our neighborhood partner organizations. It’s a give forward model that rewards residents for doing good in their neighborhood. 


Each residential unit is eligible for the Good Neighbor program. When you volunteer with our J-centrel partner organizations for 1-4 hours per month, you will receive a monthly rent credit up to $100 a month applied to each unit on a quarterly basis. Volunteer hours may include:

  • Working on projects with our partner organizations
  • Serving as block captain for the neighborhood
  • Joining a local civic association
  • Being an employee of one of our partner organizations, or
  • Becoming a member of the neighborhood Police District Advisory Council (PDAC).

Every month, your volunteer time will be logged, and the J-centrel team will verify hours. Residents will be notified of the total number of hours volunteered and the rent credit applied. We encourage the J-centrel community to volunteer as much as they can
