For the safety of our clients and staff, Penn Foundation has taken the following proactive measures through June 5, 2020. A decision will be made by June 4, 2020 on whether to extend our modification of services. Please check back for updates.

Non-Essential Services

Suspended Services
♦  Client services at Wellspring Clubhouse – While the building is closed to members, we have scheduled daily meetings via Zoom at 9:30 am and 1:00 pm. Interested members should contact the Clubhouse or their primary staff person. 

♦  Drug and Alcohol Partial Hospital Program
♦  Group wellness classes, including yoga, mindfulness, and tai chi practices

Modified Services:
Penn Foundation has adopted the option for its providers to continue treatment through telehealth.  Open Access is available Monday – Thursday, 8:30 am – 2:00 pm, by calling 215-257-6551. Penn Foundation’s EAP is also providing telehealth treatment during its normal operating hours. To make an appointment, please call 215-257-6556.

Penn Foundation’s inpatient drug and alcohol facility will begin admitting male clients only and operating with additional admission criteria. Penn Foundation will continue to reassess its operations within the inpatient drug and alcohol facility every two weeks to determine if it is appropriate to increase capacity and expand admissions to include female clients.
