The Tioga United Organization has helped to bebuild our community by relationships with our neighbors. It is now helping in planing and obtaining a new super market and valued stores to be bought to our community. This is one of the first big markets and new jobs for our community. There will be a mini mall for our community. They have hosed "Unity Day" for our community. Bringing our neigbors together for a fun day with a parade throughout the neighborhood. They also hosed a "Senior Prom" which they were host to many seniors in our community. The night was festive and the seniors enjoyed all the activities planned. They have purchased some vacant houses and rehabed them for low income families. They have many initives to help our community. They clean up vacant lots and vacant properties. They help at the Jerome Brown Playground with our "Friends and Family Day" and our afternoon school program for the children. This organization is an asset to our community. I am happy to volunteer my services whenever needed. This is one of the top ranked organization in Philadelphia. This organization has impacted our community in a positive manner. Juanita Zeigler Stevenson, President of the Jerome Brown Advisory Board and member of Tioga United.

Tioga United is an organizatoin which truly utilizes the concept of unity. The volunteers in this organization insist that nothing be done unless it has the approval of the people it serves. In fact, the very process of action begins with determining the desires of the constituency. Once, the community has been given a fair opportunity to be heard, action plans are designed that match the vision of the community at large. Tioga United makes certain to unite all resources at hand from the federal government to the local block captain to accoplish its goals. What makes TU such a special organiazation is that it is 100% volunteer. In other words, most of the work done by this organization is accomplished between the hours of 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. after its members leave their regular "paying" jobs.
