Mission Statement

Blessings, Inc. offers transformative programming to the youth of Philadelphia, designed to encourage, enlighten and instill in them the knowledge that there are no limits to what they can achieve.

Description

Blessings, Inc is a nonprofit organization that serves the youth of Philadelphia and we offer two programs. First, the Growing Achievers Program is open to children ages 5 - 12 and is held every Saturday. The goal is to provide activities that will expose the children to a variety of experiences that will expand their horizons. The program includes activities such as: Bible lessons, arts & crafts, games, movies, trips (cultural and recreational), workshops and guest speakers. Metamorphosis is our second program and is designed for teens that are currently in the foster care system or have been identified as at-risk. We provide a series of workshops (four weeks each in length) that are designed to teach various life skills. Studies show that due to the overwhelming number of children and teens that need to be served within the foster care system, many teens age out without the necessary skills to make it on their own. Skills such as completing a job application, going on a job interview, opening a bank account, securing housing etc. are skills that are needed by many. We are looking for caring individuals to join our team of volunteers that serve all of our wonderful children.
