Foundation Matters. That’s why ACTION United has been helping the Philadelphia working family since our inception. We believe that if you work a full time job, you should not have to rely on government assistance to get by, nor should you live in poverty. We know that the foundation of this city was built on the efforts of the working class, and that until EVERYONE in Philadelphia receives equal opportunity to achieve those rights, our job is not complete. Below are our efforts for a more fair, more prosperous, Philadelphia.
