There are 2,400 reports of child sexual abuse each year in Philadelphia...we want to bring healing and justice to every child.
Imagine a safe haven where experts in the fields of social work, law enforecement, child protective services, medicine and mental health collaborate to ensure that every child affected by sexual abuse in Philadelphia is able to begin the healing process - a place that works to ensure that justice is carried out --- that place is the Philadelphia Children's Alliance.
Welcome to the Philadelphia Children's Alliance web site, a resource for anyone concerned about helping sexually abused children or seeking information on the subject. The information provided here will enhance your understanding of a difficult problem. We invite you to join us in making a difference in our community's response to child sexual abuse.

PCA Teddy Bear Days!
Every child who receives services from the Philadelphia Children's Alliance is offered the opportunity to select a teddy bear or stuffed animal toy upon leaving. We have found that this small token can help to begin the healing process for children who have been sexually abused. (View our teddy video on the PCA YouTube Channel)
