    Annual Community Meeting

    All West Philadelphia residents are invited to the annual meetings hosted by SHCA to listen to a guest speaker from the community, learn about the organization and participate in elections. Annual meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each November. Check our homepage in the fall for information about upcoming meetings.
