KidsPeace Orchard Hills Campus Road Construction Complete

 Permanent link

For over a year, there have been detours that made it challenging to drive to the KidsPeace Orchard Hills Campus in Orefield, PA. KidsPeace is happy to announce that the construction on Route 309 and Old Packhouse Road has been completed, and access to the campus is now direct and smooth. There is now a traffic light at the intersection of Old Packhouse Road and Route 309, and Old Packhouse Road is wider, smoother and less curvy. With the detour removed, visitors to KidsPeace have a shorter drive with much less traffic.

This is just one more reason for customers who have been planning to visit KidsPeace to schedule their visits now. Our Client Services Liaisons will be happy to take you on a tour of our facilities and give you the opportunity to speak with our clinical and educational staff members as you travel from unit to unit. The new road will also make it easier for parents to visit their children at KidsPeace and make driving in bad weather safer overall. Please schedule a visit by calling 800-8KID-123 and asking for a Client Services Liaison.

A KidsPeace Foster Child's Philanthropic Heart

 Permanent link


Jenny*, a twelve-year-old foster client of the South Bend, Indiana, office, had the desire to help other children who have been in her situation. Jenny had the idea of having a donation drive at her middle school. She approached her teacher, Ms. James*, as well as her KidsPeace Family Consultant, Cory Headley about her wonderful idea. After getting the reassurance needed from Cory, Jenny encouraged her fellow students to donate items such as hygiene products, school supplies, books and other supplies to KidsPeace in an effort to “help other foster kids like me,” Jenny said. As an incentive to raise donations, Matt Fischer, Family Resource Specialist, obtained donations from Krispy Kreme and Pizza King to award the classroom raising the most items with a pizza and doughnut party. The winning classroom alone donated over 600 items for KidsPeace. The South Bend, Indiana, KidsPeace Office is very grateful to Jenny for all of her heart and dedication to seeing her goal come to life.
