Kids at Heart

Kids at Heart is the largest fundraiser of the year for Turning Points for Children. The proceeds from this event ensures that the highest level of quality programming is provided to the thousands of families that we serve. On Thursday, April 23, 2015, we will be hosting the annual Kids at Heart Benefit at the prestigious Union League of Philadelphia.

This is an opportunity to celebrate the children and families we serve and the "turning points” who have affected their lives. Their stories are remarkable and we want to share a few of them with you. The evening includes cocktails, wine and food, a silent auction and exciting entertainment. Your support could be the turning point. MORE

Since 1835, Turning Points has been a major provider of services for children and families, now serving over 6,000 families annually.

Turning Points was recently appointed by the City of Philadelphia as the Community Umbrella Agency (CUA) for Lower Northeast Philadelphia (15th Police District) and West/Southwest Philadelphia (12th and 18th Police Districts).

CUAs are responsible for managing a system of care that includes child abuse and neglect prevention services, foster care, care, and adoption services. CUAs are part of a citywide initiative undertaken by the Department of Human Services called Improving Outcomes for Children, which aims to guarantee that all of Philadelphia’s children grow up safe, healthy and in permanent homes.
