Turning Points for Children, an accredited human services agency, joined PHMC as an affiliate in March 2013. Turning Points for Children is accredited by the Council on Accreditation, which partners with human services organizations worldwide. They support families by partnering with caregivers to develop and strengthen protective qualities and by offering them the tools, skills and resources they need to ensure their children's optimal development.

Turning Points for Children offers innovative programs that nurture families with children who are struggling against difficult economic and environmental odds. Programming includes after-school family programs, teen parent education and assistance to relative caregivers and in-home services for vulnerable children who may be at imminent risk of child abuse or neglect. Since 2011, Turning Points for Children has been the sole agency in the city of Philadelphia providing supportive networks for children who have been placed in the foster care system.

Turning Points for Children formed in June 2008 – the result of the merger of two long-standing Philadelphia nonprofits: Children's Aid Society of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Society for Services to Children. Between them, the two organizations have provided nearly 300 years of services and support to children and families.
