Give / Help

Your financial gift directly benefits children and families served by Gemma Services (formerly Silver Springs – Martin Luther School and theVillage) today. There are several ways you can help. Especially now during the COVID-19 crisis, Gemma and the children and families we serve need your support more than ever. Please consider one of these ways you might support our mission today.

As of November 1 2019, we are excited to have merged with Silver Springs – Martin Luther School, an organization based in Plymouth Meeting with a similar history and commitment to vulnerable children, youth, and families. In the coming months, we will transition to our new organization name, Gemma Services. To read more about our exciting new name and brand identity, please click here.

Together with Silver Springs – Martin Luther School, our combined programs include: Residential Treatment for boys and girls ranging from age 6-18; Outpatient Behavioral Health Services for children of all ages and their families; Foster Care and Kinship Care for at-risk children; Adoption and permanency services; In-Home Protective Services and Prevention Programs; specialized “wrap around” support services for school-aged children; a special education school for K-8 students; and after-school programs for at-risk children in grades K-5. Our residential programs include innovative practices that include Art Therapy, Dance and Movement Therapy, Equine Therapy, Pet-Assisted Therapy, Yoga, Running and Fitness Programs, and much more. Across all programs, we are committed to evidence based practices.
