Providing shelter and care for orphans, children, and youth since 1879.

Our Story

Our story began with a tiny bequest and a big vision to provide aid to poor, homeless children. In 1879, the Baptist Orphanage of Philadelphia was established.

Our Homes

BCS YES! has three group homes and an emergency shelter for children ages 12 - 18. There are two group home programs for girls and another for boys. The emergency shelter serves as a respite home for boys.

Our Organization

BCS YES! is the doing-business name of Baptist Children’s Services. We are licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and regulated by the Department of Public Welfare, Chapter 3800 Regulations of the Pennsylvania Code.
