Public Hearing on Institutional Youth Placements

13:00 - 16:00

Council Chamber, Room 400, City Hall, Philadelphia 19107
Currently, 1,400 Philadelphia youth are in institutional placements far from home. These placements are expensive – they cost $119,000 per child annually — and too many of them have been cited for neglect and abuse. Seven in 10 youth in placement are black. We know we can serve our young people just as well in local settings which focus on culturally competent, community-based, trauma-informed treatment.
Join Councilmember Helen Gym and the Juvenile Law Center, the Philadelphia Defender Association, Public Citizens for Children & Youth, and the Education Law Center to hear the experiences of youth and how we can start to bring our young people home. #SafelyHomePhilly
