The mission of PCCYFS is to

“Improve the quality of life for Pennsylvania's children, youth, and families who are at risk by supporting and promoting an accessible service delivery system within our communities”.

The Pennsylvania Council of Children, Youth & Family Services is a statewide organization of private agencies. Our members are the service providers who provide the direct "hands-on" programs and supports needed to achieve and maintain permanency and safety for children and youth and stability for families. They share a commitment to child safety and community protection related to rehabilitation of juvenile offenders.

The safety and well-being of Pennsylvania's children and their families have long been held as priorities by private agencies who share a deep commitment to keeping children safe, families strong, and communities involved.

Meeting these policy mandates requires adequate and appropriate public funding. Advocacy efforts focus on these issues.

Priorities

PCCYFS is committed to vigorously representing the interests of private providers as well as the needs of the children, youth and families they serve. Our strategic plan addresses two priority areas:
1. Influencing public policy and the funding environment
2. Providing a responsive array of quality membership services and support
Membership services reflect the diversity of services offered by our members!

Services provided by our member agencies range from prevention focused, in home services to foster and campus based residential and residential treatment services. Many members also have strong behavioral health and educational components incorporated into their array of services and supports. All strive to maintain high standards of practice. The diversity of our members has increased in recent years, as have the issues specific to the services provided and the complexity of the children and families served.

Information, advocacy & professional developemnt/training offered by PCCYFS mirrors expansion of challenges.
