A 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.
A majority of the children and youth we help have been exposed to and are victims of trauma and childhood adversity. Please take a moment and view the video below to learn more about childhood trauma and its impact on children. Nadine Burke Harris is an expert on the subject matter and provides great insight during this TED Talk video.
