“One of our goals is to change the level of poverty in the city and its generational poverty,” Domb said. “And one of the best tools of changing that is through financial literacy pre-K to 12th grade. It’s not going to happen overnight, but over the next 10–15–20 years, by teaching financial literacy, we will break generational poverty.” Thanks to the Northeast Times for covering the financial literacy lessons being taught to 2nd and 3rd graders (and beyond) at Hancock Elementary. Councilman Domb is proud to sponsor Philadelphia school teachers to take the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia program that helps teachers incorporate financial literacy lessons into their curriculum.

    Students keep their mind on their money - Northeast Times
    It's never too early in life to learn the importance of money. Students at Hancock Elementary, 3700 Morrell Ave., are learning this valuable lesson and becoming financially literate in the process. Last year, City Councilman Allan Domb heard about a unique program that the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia was leading.

About Pennsport

Hi Pennsport, My wife and I are looking to buy a home in the 400 block of Moore St. area. In our research, though, we've noticed that in the past month there have been 2 shootings near that area and at least 2 more within a 15 min walk. Up to May though it seems Pennsport was relatively quiet. Trulia lists the crime as low relative to Philadelphia and other sites also claim crime in the area isn't bad.

We'd like some insider thoughts; homes in Philadelphia are getting up there in price and if possible I'd like to avoid a costly mistake. I look forward to getting some inside perspective.

  • Steven Buller Beer Jesus

    You don’t have to worry, a vast majority of the shootings have to deal with street beefs, they also are HIGHLY LIKELY to be targeted crimes. The average joe doesn’t get involved in shootings.

  • I'm looking to sell my house on moyamensing closer to McKean. We haven't posted the house yet but if you are interested in let me know.
