Child Welfare Agency Brings New Expertise


Founded in 1987, Best Nest Inc. quickly distinguished itself by serving as one of the first agencies in Philadelphia to address the needs of children infected or affected by HIV in the child welfare system.

Today, Best Nest's mission is to promote the health and well-being of children and youth with significant physical, emotional, and health care needs by providing training and support to their families. Best Nest serves about 200 children and their families per year across Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties.

This partnership brings exciting programs and new capabilities to the PHMC family. Our newest affiliate specializes in out-of-home care, counseling and case management to vulnerable children, youth and their families, and parenting education and support services. Through funding from SWAN--the Statewide Adoption Network--Best Nest offers subsidized adoption services to families who adopt children with special needs.

PHMC welcomes Best Nest to our team!
