Frankies World Foundation is a nonprofit 501 © 3 charitable organization created to enrich the lives of young children with disabilities. The Foundation provides for the health and well-being of children age birth to 8 years who are medically-fragile technology-dependent or have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. We encourage and inspire this special population of children to reach for the highest possible goals intellectually socially and physically.
The Foundations flagship initiative is Frankies World a Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Center or PPECC licensed by the State of Pennsylvania. It opened on July 19 2006 and is centrally located in Northern Liberties to be accessible to children from all parts of Philadelphia. When my daughter Frankie was a toddler on a ventilator in 2000 there was no medically-safe place for her to go to make friends and learn about the world. We made Frankies World into the kind of place she would have loved.
Our state-of-the-art facility is staffed by experienced pediatric nurses and Head Start educators. The interior is a large open playroom equipped with toys books games computers adapted seating therapy equipment tricycles indoor swing set and much more every item carefully selected to maximize a child’s opportunity for physical physiological and intellectual growth and development.

Head Start education is provided in partnership with Acelero Learning and includes developmental assessments nutritious meals and kindergarten readiness preparation. There is no cost to parents we will work with your child’s doctor and insurance company.
