February 2019 • Presented by the • Department of Behavioral Health and • Intellectual disAbility Services • DBHIDS Behavioral Health Provider Agencies
History The Department of Behavioral Health has offered the camp grant to the Philadelphia community since 1998. It started with one member of the Children’s Unit, Madeline Moore, working to inspire her unit and the department to gather finances to help families who could not afford camp and needed summer programming for their children. That first year we were able to pay for 12 children to attend camp. Over the years the grant has grown and now funds camp for over 1300 children each year. The grant now bears the name of Madeline Moore in her memory.
