Professional Services for Children, Youth and Families
CONCERN is a multi-service private non-profit 501(c)(3) human services organization dedicated to providing child welfare, juvenile justice, and behavioral health services to children and their families. Founded in 1978, CONCERN began as a pioneer of treatment foster care, believing that children placed into care should live in a traditional family setting in the community, rather than in a residential or institutional setting. Since this time, CONCERN has been at the forefront of innovative programs to meet the individual needs of the child.
Since 1978, CONCERN has served nearly 17,000 children and youth in placement services, including placing nearly 2,000 children into adoptive families. Through 13 sites throughout eastern and north central Pennsylvania and southern Maryland, CONCERN offers a growing array of foster care, adoption and permanency, community based, behavioral health, and residential programs. Each day, our placement services impact the lives of more than 300 children and youth. Each year, our adoption and permanency services assist nearly 400 children in finding their “forever family;” our community based services touches the lives of nearly 200 individuals and families; and our behavioral health services impact the lives of nearly 5,000 individuals through a continuum of services.
