Adoption & Foster Care

We believe that individuals and families can succeed when they are provided with the right tools to help them overcome existing barriers and prepare for future ones.

Our bilingual and culturally-sensitive staff prioritizes keeping children in their communities, through certified kinship caregivers when appropriate, to ultimately achieve positive permanency outcomes such as reunification, adoption and permanent legal custody. Pradera is guided by the standards under the City’s Improving Outcomes for Children (IOC) initiative.

APM Pradera received an “optimal” rating (the top score rating available) on DHS’s 2021 Foster Care Report. Our team is committed to providing exceptional support in order to create better outcomes for children and families in Philadelphia

Resource Homes

We currently provide resource home services to 290 Resource Homes with 402 children in care. Twenty-two percent of our homes are certified to care for youth with Specialized Behavioral Health needs who need additional structure and support. More than a quarter of our homes are prepared to care for English-limited and primarily Spanish speaking children and youth.

It is crucial to us that our Resource Caregivers reflect the populations and communities we serve.
