Forget Me Knot Children & Youth Services began through street outreach and school initiatives in Philadelphia, PA and Camden, NJ. Even then, FMKCYS was providing young people with one-on-one and group mentoring, job readiness, entrepreneurship, financial literacy, employment, educational enrichment and peer groups focused on identity, purpose and cognitive development. Realizing that a growing population of young people served were affected by homelessness, sex trafficking, poverty and trauma, the need to obtain a central location became paramount.
FMKCYS is a Human Service organization that provides education, employment,
business development, community service and trauma informed support groups and case management for youth and families. In addition, Forget Me Knot Children & Youth Services operates as a drop-in day center, group home, and supportive housing to homeless, runaway and at-risk youth ages 12-20. Since being established in 2015, Forget Me Knot Children & Youth Services has provided services for more than 1,400 youth and families in Philadelphia and Camden County. FMKCYS is a Licensed Residential Treatment Center through Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
