The Community Health Enrichment Empowerment Resource Services program, aka C.H.E.E.R.S., aims to give youths age 8 to 17 the ability to have a positive outlook, become a contributing member of society, make a positive change in their community and pass along that knowledge to their peers with their actions. The classes run 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays through April 20 at Shiloh Baptist Church, 2040 Christian St., in the 17th District, which was selected as one of seven areas plagued by high incidents of violence. 

For more information or to see if your child qualifies, contact Community Relations Unit Officer Darlene Chapman at 215-686-3380 or

Contact Managing Editor Amanda L. Snyder at or ext. 117.
