We offer programs that help families in raising safe, healthy, educated, and strong children by partnering with caregivers to develop and strengthen protective qualities and by offering them the tools, skills, and resources needed to ensure their children's optimal development.
We do this through our affiliates and our programs: Family Finding, which connects kids aging out of the foster care system with families they had lost; The Parenting Program, which serves teen moms and dads and adult parents; the Food and Wellness Network (FAWN), a community-based food pantry offering food, infant formula, diapers and nutrition education resources; YVLifeSet that provides transition services to young adults, ages 17-22, who are leaving the foster care, juvenile justice, and mental health systems and helps them with resources and support to thrive; Turning Points for Children’s foster care program, providing safe and healthy homes for over 500 children in Philadelphia; and The Bridge, an affiliate of Turning Points for Children, which is a behavioral health treatment and youth opportunity program for adolescents and their families seeking to overcome substance abuse, mental health issues, truancy and other challenges.
