Join Lilypad/SPPRC today. Help shape the future of South Philly.

We all know it takes a village to raise children. So join SPPRC/Lilypad as we transition to our brand new name and space at 1234 S. Broad Street, and get the support we all need to help create a strong, diverse community. Did you know SPPRC/Lilypad runs the list-serve Kids South Of Washington and CityKids Consignment Sale? Visit us on Facebook, for activities and things to do with kids in our city.


Exciting things are happening for the SPPRC/Lilypad in 2016:

  • Membership drive for Lilypad, Where South Philly Families Land, our family center in South Philly (with classes, playgroups, parenting events, toy lending library)
  • New website with forums
  • Local listings of weekly classes, playgroups, library storytimes, and other local family-friendly events
