  • Community

    The Monkey & The Elephant's goal is provide a supportive community where former foster youth can become successfully independent.

  • Social

    Over 1,100 youth age out of the foster care system in Philadelphia annually. They are no longer eligible for support services and often with no family, no job, and no mentors they end up homeless, living in poverty, or incarcerated. The Monkey & The Elephant helps many make this transition easier so these kids can land on their feet and hit the ground running towards independence.

  • Employees Culture

    As the café and programming grow, employees will have access to on-site mentoring as well as career and life skills workshops.
