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.

With its mission to provide continuous care on the ladder of independence for individuals with disabilities, CATCH wrestles with the dichotomy of evermore finite and diminishing resources and the community's real and expanding needs for its unique human services.

Currently, the Executive Practices and Procedures are more efficient than ever. In fact, CATCH, as a not-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 the developmentally disabled; long-term, interventional, emergency, and geriatric resident programs continue throughout the City; ongoing outreach in consultation to brother and sister agencies; and the expanded transportation department specializing in the delivery of residents to medical health care providers are just a few accomplishments of which we are especially cognizant and proud. Finally, we are ever grateful for the ongoing financial support and partnering that CATCH receives from the City of Philadelphia, Office of Behavioral Health/Intellectual Disabilities and Community Behavioral Health, as well as our numerous unnamed friends and benefactors.
