Turning Points for Children is the identity of the 2008 merger of two Philadelphia non-profit social services organizations, Children’s Aid Society of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Society for Services to Children. These organizations go back in the City of Philadelphia to 1835 - only two generations after the Declaration of Independence in this city, and within two generations of the Revolutionary War period.
Both organizations combined have provided nearly 300 years of services and support to children and families. These two organizations merged to provide more quality programs to more families in the region – creating stronger families and brighter futures!
At Turning Points for Children, we provide proven, innovative programs that nurture families with children who are struggling against difficult economic and environmental odds. Our approach includes after-school family programs, teen parent education, and assistance to relative caregivers and in-home services for vulnerable children who may be in imminent risk of child abuse or neglect. Further, since 2011, this agency is the sole agency in the city that now provides supportive networks for children who have been placed in the foster care system.
Turning Points for Children provides the critical resources, life skills and supportive partnerships needed to create stronger families and raise children with the hope for brighter futures.
