Welcome to Olde Kensington Neighborhood Association

About Us

Mission Statement

 The Olde Kensington Neighborhood Association (OKNA) is an association of concerned citizens, who live in the Olde Kensington and Ludlow Neighborhood of Philadelphia. The neighborhood association is a diverse amalgamation of individuals from around the community. We have one thing in common, concern for our community and the people that live in it. We meet to address/discuss physical, social, and economic issues and concerns. Through public neighborhood meetings, communication and educating the community, we advocate on those issues that will impact our community.  

What We Do

We foster a strong sustainable community by:   


  • Advocate for jobs.
  • Develop and implement structure programs for youth.
  • Encourage neighborhood involvement and participation.
  • Encourage technical skills training and higher education for all individuals.
  • Launch youth programs and marketing effort to attract youth and residents. 
  • Develop future leaders.
  • Ensure that the Ludlow  School & Cruz Recreation Center can sustain itself.
