The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania anticipates releasing $2,665,388 to our department of Children, Youth and Families.

The increased funds will be allocated to counseling, training in life skills, emergency shelter, foster care and child abuse protective services. These programs are crucial to protect our most vulnerable residents.
