CPA is on a mission to reduce poverty and injustice by providing high-quality services that nurture positive child and youth development, stable families across the life cycle, and thriving communities. This ambitious, but grave, pursuit starts with nurturing positive child and youth development and encouraging family stability. So, in providing these community services, we strive to help our neighbors thrive.

We have been on this mission for over 85 years. We have strong roots in the efforts of empowerment for Philadelphia children and youth to become positive citizens, decision-makers, and leaders. We achieve this by providing youth, their families, and their elders with high-quality, community-based programs, and services that promote character building, educational achievement, healthy lifestyles and teamwork.

Services are provided without regard to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender, color, creed, or disability.
