Statement from Wordsworth - October 26, 2016

We are saddened by the death of a resident in our Residential Treatment Facility on Ford Road in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia and are devastated at allegations brought against us. Due to the ongoing nature of this investigation, we are limited in our ability to comment on the various allegations raised. We are fully cooperating with all relevant agencies and authorities and are treating this matter with the seriousness and respect it deserves.  

We remain committed to our mission of providing education, behavioral health  and child welfare services to children and youth experiencing emotional behavioral and academic challenges so that they are empowered to reach their potential and lead productive fulfilling lives.

Wordsworth has a long history in serving youth and families and we remain committed to our mission. 

All Wordsworth programs with the exception of our Residential Treatment Facility continue to operate.
