In September 2005, A Second Chance, Inc. (ASCI) opened their first regional office in Philadelphia. PA. Throughout the initial period of its second decade of kinship care service delivery, A Second Chance, Inc. collaborated with the Philadelphia Department of Human Services (DHS) in the creation of a new system of kinship care services for the benefit of children and families engaged in the Philadelphia child welfare system.
A Second Chance, Inc. supports kinship foster care that provides stability and continuity, maintaining a child's cultural identity and contact with their birth family. By placing children in the homes of the birth family's relatives or friends, parents can better concentrate on their efforts to improve their lives and home environments in preparation for eventual reunification.
In cooperation with Philadelphia Department of Human Services (DHS), A Second Chance, Inc.’s Philadelphia Regional Office (PRO) provides a full range of services to families, youth and children.
These services include:
