Sober Truth on Preventing Underage Drinking
DHS Parenting Collaborative/Parent Empowerment Workshops (since 2006) – TOCFWH provides parent empowerment workshops to Philadelphia parents and co-caregivers of youth from birth up to 21 years of age.
The goal is to enhance parenting skills and to build positive, resilient youth who love to learn. In addition to the workshops, parents receive source information and referrals.
TOCFWH facilitated the establishment of both the West Philadelphia Community Health Change Coalition ((WPCHCC) 2010, which was developed by the Haddington Community Health Project Collaborative HCHP since 1995-2010), and Nicetown-Tioga Improvement Team ((NTIT) in 1998). The WPCHCC and NTIT are local State Health Improvement Partnerships (SHIP) of more than 60 collaborative members. The collaboratives function via subcommittees.
- Drug-Free Community (DFC) (since 2015) and STOP ACT (since 2020) – TOCFWH is the lead agency for the West Philadelphia Community Health Change Coalition (WPCHCC), which was awarded the Drug-Free Communities Support Program grant and STOP Act grants through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA). The WPCHCC plans to address and reduce the use of prescription drugs, alcohol, and tobacco among youth in grades 6th through 12th in the Overbrook High School area community by working in partnership to empower and mobilize the community to promote environmental community-level change.
- Preventive Health Services - All youth in any program supported by TOCFWH maintain current health records. Annual health assessments are facilitated for youth who do not have a medical home, and dental care is provided through university collaboration. Through our partnership with Sugga Mamas, our families are offered free interactive workshops designed to engage individuals in healthy eating, being active, reducing risks, and problem-solving.
- Drug and Alcohol Prevention-Social Emotional Learning (DAPSEL) - Our clients are provided a unique age-appropriate social-emotional framework focused on developing the five competencies of social-emotional learning: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.
- Yoga and Mindfulness - A certified yoga instructor conducts weekly Yoga and mindfulness practices for students to promote healthy living through movement and breathing exercises that foster cooperation, compassion, and social-emotional wellness. Students learn techniques to regulate their emotions, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and relieve stress in a safe and nonjudgmental learning environment. As students build awareness, they learn to value their minds and bodies and develop their sense of inner fulfillment and self-love. This reinforces individual youth's capacity to apply social-emotional and behavioral skills in refusing high-risk behaviors that can negatively impact workforce participation.
- Fun Fitness – A program that provides positive physical activity experiences that are diverse, fun, appropriate, and safe. This program is especially helpful to youth who live in neighborhoods with limited space and options for safe play.
- Behavioral Health - TOCFW has long-standing partnerships with Behavioral Health Providers. They provide services to our Out of School Time youth. Services include Trauma Informed Group Therapy sessions (Bullying prevention, Anger management techniques, Conflict resolution, etc.) and one-on-one, group, and family behavioral modification counseling.
- Child & Adult Care Food Program/Summer Food Services Program (CACFP/SFSP) provides meals and snacks to all youth participating in TOCFWH programs. All menus follow the nutritional guidelines of the PA Department of Education and the USDA.
