Preparing children for greatness!
At Blessings, Inc. we offer programming for the youth of Philadelphia. We offer a youth program on Saturday’s for children ages 5-12. The program consists of arts & crafts, games, movies, dance, drama and bible lessons. Additionally, we offer a one-week summer camp in August each year. As we grow, additional programs for the younger children will be offered including after school programs, mentoring, and programs that promote academics, athletics and the arts. We are committed to offering all services to the community at no charge.
Metamorphosis is the second program offered by Blessings, Inc. and will begin in September 2017. It is designed for teens that are currently in the foster care system. We will provide a series of workshops 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 of the foster care system 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 many are lacking and unfortunately a large number end up homeless if they do not have family to help support them. Our goal is to provide an experience in which the teens will not just receive information but they will have an experience that they will carry with them well after leaving the program.
