Letter From Our Executive Director

Our History
Over 130 Years of Service
Our Policy
Equal service and treatment access
“There is no better gift to give a child than a family.”
The United States has always been regarded as a land of prosperity, freedom, and opportunity. Yet, did you know?

702,000 children in the United States are abused and neglected on a regular basis?
463,000 children in the United States live in foster homes?
12,000 children in Philadelphia are truant on a daily basis?

CSI is constantly working to help decrease these numbers. Through the dedicated and compassionate services of staff and foster parents, we are able to reach more than 1,000 children and families annually.

While we’re proud of our accomplishments, we need your help to continue to fulfill our mission. A donation in the amount of lunch for a week, can help us keep pace with the rising costs of the services we provide. Won’t you help us to make a difference in a child’s life? The child you help, just might be the one who finds the cure for cancer.

Your donation is tax deductible and can make an immediate difference!!!
