- The purpose of Friendship House is to provide a continuum of quality programs and services designed to enhance the emotional, behavioral and social well-being of children and families in the communities we serve.
- Adapting to society's ever-changing needs will enable Friendship House to sustain this mission as it has since its founding in 1871.
- Friendship House offers a full range of programs and services for at-risk children, as well as for boys and girls with emotional difficulties and their families.
- Services are provided for infants to teens, through ten programs at twelve locations in Eastern Pennsylvania.
- Friendship House programs are child-centered, family-focused and take an inclusive approach in consideration for the child's complete needs.
- Friendship House has been accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
- We maintain accreditation voluntarily because we care deeply about these children and we know successful treatment requires continuous improvement as mandated by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations standards.
