About Us

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.


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.
