ECS uses health screenings and wellness education to help people identify their health needs. These services are integrated into every program and activity.

Families in our housing programs receive regular health screenings thanks to a partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Parents are also encouraged to attend our parenting classes, offered in conjunction with the DHS Parenting Collaborative, leveraging the therapeutic use of parent groups to support both single and dual parent households.


As a part of ARAMARK’s Healthy for Life initiative, ECS provided nutrition education workshops to parents of children in our Out of School Time program in Feltonville.
