 BETHLEHEM BROADWAY CAMPUS OFFERS SPECTRUM OF PROGRAMS  FOR LEHIGH VALLEY FAMILIES

KidsPeace has expanded and broadened its services with the opening of a new outpatient facility at its campus located at 1650 Broadway in South Bethlehem. 

The new KidsPeace Family Center at Broadway will offer a spectrum of services for children and families, including a new 24-hour toll-free phone number that will serve as a referral source for parents who need help.


The Family Center will offer:  Diagnostic Services, Autism Services, (Including the Sarah’s Smile Summer Camp and After School Therapeutic Programs), Outpatient Therapy, Behavioral Health and Rehabilitation Services (BHRS), Drug and Alcohol Treatment, In-Home Treatment, Allied Professional Services and Referrals.

 

“We are very proud today to announce an exciting new chapter in our organization’s 128-year-old history,” said William Isemann, KidsPeace President & CEO. “This initiative expands our services to provide much-needed programs in the Lehigh Valley and broadens our mission to provide hope, help and healing to children, families and communities.”

 

As part of this new center, KidsPeace is also launching a new toll-free phone number in the Lehigh Valley that will serve as a referral source for parents who may be struggling with their children and need assistance.  888-KP-Helps is staffed by KidsPeace Admissions Associates who will assess the caller’s needs and help them navigate the system to find the best resources.  At times, those callers will be referred to KidsPeace diagnostic or treatment services.  Other calls may be referred to another Lehigh Valley agency better suited to meet a specific need. Help may also be accessed through a new online form at www.kidspeace.org.

 

The 50 children who previously resided on the Broadway Campus have been moved to the newly renovated Pioneer Center on the Orchard Hills Campus, Orefield, and have begun the school year along with all other KidsPeace residential students.

 

The newly constructed 9,500 square-foot center on the southwestern end of the campus will serve as the operation hub where assessments can be conducted, appointments provided and where families can access help navigating the system to locate the best resources to meet their needs.

 

Built on the original site of the former Wiley House, the center was completed this summer and reflects the original design of the home that began as a children’s orphanage in 1882.  Space in the other buildings on the campus will also be utilized for classes, services and a variety of programs and therapies.  At a total cost of $3 million, the project included extensive curbing, driveway access and street renovations by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.

 

Approximately 117 full and part-time KidsPeace Associates will staff the KidsPeace Center and Broadway Campus.
