About Us

Our History

Caring People Alliance began serving Philadelphia's youth in 1932 when the Founders set out to reduce crime during the Great Depression. Since then, we have expanded services for youth and have incorporated programming for our youngest children, families, and older adults. Today, we operate three Boys & Girls Clubs in some of Philadelphia's most impoverished communities. For over 90 years, we have been dedicated to offering high-quality, community-based programs and services that promote character building, educational achievement, healthy lifestyles and teamwork. 

Our Mission

To reduce poverty and injustice by providing high quality services that nurture positive child and youth development, stable families across the life cycle, and thriving communities. 

Our Vision

Caring People Alliance will provide the highest quality services that propel extraordinary achievement in the young, help families build intergenerational wealth, nurture our elders, and create safe, healthy, and vibrant communities. 

Our Core Beliefs

Caring People Alliance believes that in nurturing positive child and youth development, we can encourage family stability. Our belief is that in providing these essential, life-enhancing community services, we not only offer hope and opportunity, but we can strive to help our neighbors thrive. 

Caring People Alliance is on a mission to reduce poverty and injustice throughout Philadelphia. This ambitious, but grave, pursuit starts with nurturing positive child and youth development and encouraging family stability. So, in providing these community services, we strive to help our neighbors thrive.

We have been on this mission for 90 years. We have strong roots in the efforts of empowerment for Philadelphia children and youth to become positive citizens, decision-makers, and leaders.  We achieve this by providing youth, their families, and their elders with high quality, community-based programs, and services that promote character building, educational achievement, healthy lifestyles and teamwork.

Services are provided without regard to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, gender, color, creed, or disability. 

Caring People Alliance is here to help.
