Pennsylvania’s most precious resource is our children. The sad truth is that no community in Pennsylvania is without child abuse. The mission of Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance (PFSA) is to provide education, support, and training programs to make Pennsylvania safe for children. Our vision is for all children to grow and thrive free from abuse and neglect.
We are here to help your family succeed in making that vision a reality.
PFSA believes the best nurturers of children should be their loving parents. But sometimes parents need help navigating through the different stages of childhood. Through our statewide network of affiliated agencies, we offer information, peer support, and practical tips to help parents at every stage of their child’s development. Some of our partners even offer respite care for children so that parents can regroup and refocus for a more positive family experience. Find a listing of these partner agencies at our website, pa-fsa.org.
We also know that each of us has a role to play in keeping kids safe. PFSA engages community members to be aware of situations that could pose harm to a child and we show them safe, effective strategies to defuse these dangers through our Front Porch Project. Call us to arrange a Front Porch session in your community at 800-448-4906.
It’s important to ensure that adults who care for your children comply with all state requirements including criminal history checks and child abuse clearances. PFSA helped enact these protections to keep kids safe. Insist that these rules are followed for your child’s protection!
PFSA also offers encouragement and support to grandparents raising grandchildren. Our Recovering Families program helps parents balance the demands of their recovery from addiction with the responsibilities of parenting.
