Family Finding

The Family Finding program works to locate and engage people who can be lifelong supports for children in placement or at risk of placement. Every child has a family and when they are removed from family to enter the child welfare system, one of the side effects is loneliness. Turning Points for Children is the sole provider of Family Finding services in Philadelphia. Children reconnect with family members or other significant people in their past with whom they have lost contact or perhaps have never met through this program. This helps a child develop an essential sense of belonging, identity and resilience. Specially trained social workers, with extensive search and engagement skills, work diligently to connect children of all ages with a caring adult family members.
