DHS

The Department of Human Services (DHS) has a comprehensive, citywide system transformation effort aimed at improving the outcomes for children, youth, and families involved with the child welfare system in Philadelphia.  DHS follows the premise that positive outcomes such as safety, permanency and well-being are achieved through the use of child protection and child welfare services that are family-centered, community-based, culturally competent, integrated, timely, and accountable for results.

Call ChildLine 1-800-932-0313 to report suspected child abuse or general child well-being concerns.
