The Juvenile Justice Center of Philadelphia is a non-profit, multi-service agency that serves the needs of disadvantaged children, youth and families.

Firstly, our mission is to maintain families, through supportive services, to prevent children and youth from being placed in care, and also to ready families for reunion with their children.

Secondly, in respect of those severely neglected, abused, abandoned or seriously delinquent children, for whom care is essential, our mission is to provide caring foster and residential care, combined with supportive services. JJC aims to enable healthy emotional and physical growth, leading to the child's return to the biological family, adoption or adult self-sufficiency and responsibility.
