About Us

Diversified Community Services is a deeply-embedded neighborhood based nonprofit agency serving nearly 5,000 children, youth, adults, and families in the Point Breeze section of South Philadelphia. Diversified is a multi-purpose social service agency emphasizing education and skill-building while providing early childhood education as an integral function of its mission to serve Point Breeze’s low-income community. Diversified has been providing a comprehensive array of services to children and adults in the Point Breeze neighborhood of South Philadelphia for over a century. Services include:


  • For young children: Early childhood education
  • For school-age youth: Out-of-school time programming (after school and summer camp); and case management for at risk youth
  •  For adults: Employment training, parenting education, energy assistance programs, housing counseling programs, and financial literacy; and
  • For the community at large: Affordable housing and community economic development


Diversified employs a two generation strategy with the goal of improving the lives of families in one of Philadelphia’s poorest neighborhoods. The Point Breeze neighborhood has a reported 37% poverty rate, which soars above the City’s reported poverty rate of 26%. The two generation strategy is a comprehensive approach that addresses the short term impact of family financial stability through workforce training and the long term impact of quality early childhood education on family self-sufficiency.
