Philadelphia Youth Advocate Program
Main Contact: Ms. Renise D. Welbon
Our agency was founded in 1975 to provide direct services to youth returning from Camp Hill Prison in Pennsylvania. To this day, our primary focus is providing direct service to vulnerable and high need youth and families. Annually, we serve more than 10,000 families a year through programs in over 100 counties in 22 states. Our continuum of programming has diversified over the years from providing support to youth involved in the juvenile justice system to also working with youth and families in the child welfare system, with behavioral health needs, with developmental disabilities, with school and educational challenges, and, most recently, with adults in the justice system.
