HPHA, as one of the many benefits we bring to the community, is an approved and long-term participant in the Montgomery County, PA Youth Aid Panel (YAP) program.

The Youth Aid Panel is a restorative justice program of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office that provides a second chance for non-violent juvenile offenders in Montgomery County, PA. The program is also in place in other locations throughout Pennsylvania. Its aims are to encourage juveniles to be responsible for their actions, to restore them to the community and prevent future offenses and resultant harm to individuals and the community.

If you have service obligations through YAP and would like to complete those obligations with HPHA, please contact us.
