CATCH – Citizens Acting Together Can Help – has been a cornerstone and anchor in the South Philadelphia community since 1979. As a well-established and credentialed provider of Community Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Services, CATCH has an ongoing responsibility to serve and to enhance the community at large. Today, families, business, community leaders, employees and consumers are all part of a community network of specialized medical care.

CATCH, as a non-for-profit entity, has been recognized by our business and academic region with the prestigious PACE Business Award. Newly designed programs continue to strengthen CATCH’s base of offerings. There are increased efforts toward the employment of people with developmental disabilities; long-term, interventional, emergency, and geriatric resident programs continue throughout the city.

Our Mental Health Division provides comprehensive clinical services. Through this base service unit function, treatment and other needed services are coordinated to maximize quality care. The goal of the Developmental Disabilities Division is to support persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities in their desire to function as independently as possible, in every aspect of life, and to be integrated into their local communities/neighborhoods. In our Emergency and Residential Services Division, CATCH has been among the leaders in developing new programs to meet the residential and emergency servcie needs of consumers in South Philadelphia and throughout the city.
