Home > Concilio Headquarters Construction Updates

conferenceThis summer, Concilio announced plans to relocate its headquarters from Franklin Street to Hunting Park to better address the needs of Philadelphia’s growing Latino population.

The relocation of Concilio’s headquarters to the Hunting Park community will put the organization in the heart of Philadelphia’s growing Latino community.

In addition to being closer to the primary population it serves, the new 30,000 square foot location offers Concilio and its clients expanded space and parking.

This also makes for a more conducive layout to conduct social service work, such as our foster care reunifications.

The facility will offer banquet space as well.

Construction is moving along swiftly, and we are truly proud and excited to be closer to the communities that we serve!

We’ve picked the carpet, and it’s being installed. Some walls are already full of color – and some still need to go up, like those surrounding what will be our kitchen.(Photos above)
