The Community Engagement Map of Philadelphia is a digital map of nonprofit (a.k.a. third sector) organizations in proximity to Temple University’s main campus. The purpose of the map is to support community engagement by providing a birds-eye view of the organizations, their locations, and basic contact information.
Users can either click on the icons on the map to access contact information, or begin with the listing of organizations in the left panel, and then click on the listing to access general information about the organization.
