“The Enterprise Center CDC is a neighborhood-based nonprofit that fosters neighborhood renovation in West Philadelphia. We have been using CHDB for a couple years—mostly in gathering data for our grant proposals and generally using it to learn about needs and opportunities for services and improvement in West Philadelphia."
