Turning Points for Children currently provides child welfare services in Lower Northeast, West, North, and Southwest Philadelphia through Community Umbrella Agencies (CUAs). These services attempt preventing placement of children into foster care, or if they are placed, attempt to reunify families. The CUAs also provide support with adoption in the case that reunification is not possible.
The primary goal of our CUAs is to keep families together and assure children are safe. They provide classes and resources to connect parents and identify healthy coping mechanisms and strategies to parenting. Our Community Engagement Team works to partner with leaders and businesses in the community to support families where they live through information, events and resources.
