Parent-Child Home Program is expanding outside of Sharswood

The GreenLight-funded nonprofit will be operating in a number of North and South Philly ZIP codes this year, thanks to support from community partners.

If it works in one place, it might just work in another. Parent-Child Home Program’s (PCHP) early literacy and parenting program has been working since 1965, and it’s about to work in a few more Philadelphia neighborhoods.

The nonprofit was scaled to Philadelphia by the local chapter of venture philanthropy organization GreenLight Fund last spring and has been focusing its efforts in Sharswood (19121), working with families in their homes to prepare children for success in school. Now, PHCP will be expanding to three more ZIP codes in North, South and Southwest Philadelphia.

In North Philadelphia, said PCHP Philadelphia Executive Director Malkia Singleton Ofori-Agyekum, the organization will have a preference to work with Philadelphia Housing Authority (PHA) families residing in 19121, 19122, 19132 and 19133.

In South and Southwest, she said, PCHP will work with Latino and African immigrant families residing in or near 19139, 19142, 19143, 19145, 19146 and 19153.

The expansion, Ofori-Agyekum said, is funded by a partnership between GreenLight Fund, PHA and Public Health Management Corporation “with support from Vanguard and William Penn Foundation.”
