Business Description:

Turning Points for Children reduces child abuse and improves the lives of children across the Philadelphia region. We've been in this business for over 175 years. Our longevity is a credit to many mergers of child welfare agencies in Philadelphia, most recently the 2008 merger of Children's Aid Society of Pennsylvania with Philadelphia Society for Services to Children, and our affiliation with Public Health Management Corp (PHMC) in 2013. Turning Points is the leading social service agency in Philadelphia supporting the needs of more than 10,000 men, women and children throughout the city. We offer programs that help families in raising safe, healthy, educated, and strong children by partnering with caregivers to develop and strengthen protective qualities and by offering them the tools, skills, and resources needed to ensure their children's optimal development.
