How to Use This Site

What Is CAP4Kids?
Are you looking for reliable, up-to-date information about resources in the Philadelphia area for children and families? You’ve come to the right place! CAP4Kids will help you find many community agencies that exist to improve or enhance the lives of children, teens and families.

How Does Cap4Kids Work?
Please become familiar with the Parent Handouts to the left. They are the backbone of this project. They are broken down by category and within each handout, you will find a description of the social service agency, their address, and a phone number. You may also find a link to the agency’s web site that you can access and learn more about that agency. You can also easily print any parent handout by clicking on the handout, or subcategory, and choosing print from your web browser. Your selected parent handout will be sent to your printer in a custom printer friendly format. You can also download the handouts to your desktop as a pdf to share/email with others. You must have Adobe, Google Chrome or Firefox to convert to pdf. Click print, then pdf and viola!

All handouts can also be translated into over 30 languages  using the Translate button that is always in the bottom left corner of each page. . If you don’t know where to find a resource, just click on the Google Search in the upper right hand corner.

For Providers
Download the parent handouts, and give them to the families that you have identified that are in need of a particular service. After you distribute the handout, document which handout you gave so that you can get feedback at the next encounter.

On our website, you will also find links to other agencies that also have information for families and providers. Also we will feature various social service organizations every month.

There are also various Resources, Laws and Definitions that pertain to families, sample advocacy letters as well as a downloadable Cap4Kids poster.
