Juvenile Justice Center of Philadelphia

JJC is a non-profit, multi-service organization dedicated to the safety and welfare of  vulnerable children, youth and families in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We provide an array of intervention, prevention, and community based services to children, youth, and families  who are in need of supportive services.

OUR MISSION

JJC’s mission is to prevent the need for children to enter the foster care system, to provide supportive services to families in our programs, and also to prepare families to reunite with their children.

In respect to 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. At JJC, we aim to enable healthy emotional and physical growth, ultimately guiding the child’s return to their biological family, adoption or adult self-sufficiency and responsibility.

 

Resources

JJC provides an array of services to youth and families who enter our system through the Philadelphia Family Court System, the Department of Human Services, and Community Umbrella Agencies. We also provide community based programs that are open to the public.

This page is dedicated to helping the public learn about JJC programs, upcoming events, and other child welfare resources available to anyone who may be in need of services whether they are children in severe circumstances, parents in need of support, or anyone wishing to make a difference in the life of a child.
