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. You can also print a single resource by typing in the name of the resource in the Google search bar, and printing just the one. 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 at the top of the site. If you don’t know where to find a resource, just click on the Google Search above the Parent Handouts to the left.

To have Cap4Kids on your mobile device, just open the website on your phone’s internet browser and click “add to home screen” and voila, Cap4Kids is on your phone.

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.
