Chester County’s Children, Inc.

is a nonprofit, 501 (c)(3) charitable organization serving Chester County’s underprivileged and needy children. We provide financial aid for families in crisis and children under the age of 18 living in foster care. The organization works in conjunction with the Chester County Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF). Chester County’s Children, Inc. relies on donations from individuals, businesses, private companies and foundations. These donations provide funding for specific needs, as well as children’s recreational activities like Summer Camp, on behalf of children referred to us by DCYF. A volunteer Board of Directors chairs the organization, which functions without paid staff and with minimal administrative costs. Each year, hundreds of children receive assistance from Chester County’s Children, Inc.

There are currently 145 children placed in foster care in Chester County. Approximately 3000 children are affected by and/or involved in the Chester County Foster Care system each year.

"The children are very shy, and it was good for them to be put in situations where they had to make friends. They both did well at camp and reportedly got along well with everyone!"
"They really enjoyed being all together for an overnight camp during the week, and had fun participating in the crafts, and challenging one another in the games. They also enjoyed the outdoor group activities, and learned about team work. The girls each took home at least one phone number of a friend from camp to have for when they arrived home, and they have all been in touch at least once with the new friends they made at camp!”
“I made some new friends, and had a great time skateboarding! The best skateboard skill I learned was how to 'drop in!’ "
