  • Martin Luther School was founded in 1859 in Philadelphia as an orphanage.
  • Located today in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, Silver Springs promotes trauma recovery and family reunification in a nurturing and healing environment with a quality educational program.
  • Through trauma-informed approaches children are helped to heal and manage the overwhelming feelings and memories of the bad, sad and scary things that have happened to them.
  • The children's program offers comprehensive services including residential treatment for children ages 6-14, special education for grades K through 8, and community based services.
  • Silver Springs provides a continuum of care that begins when a child enters care and continues well after a child leaves our programs.
