A long history of success

Officially incorporated in 1971 – Our long, successful history began when we were officially incorporated as “The Upper Moreland Youth and Drug Council, Inc.” in 1971.

Our name, “Aldersgate” – Our name was derived from our location at the Aldersgate House of the Willow Grove United Methodist Church. Initially volunteers provided drop-in counseling, crisis intervention, information, and referral components.  Soon, professional counselors and therapists were hired and we became designated as a Youth Services Bureau.

Today – Over our four-decade history, Aldersgate has earned a well respected reputation as an experienced youth and family social services agency, funded primarily by government contracts, county and private contracts, grants, community donations, and client fees.  Services are provided to residents of Montgomery, Philadelphia and Bucks Counties and surrounding areas.

We and our clients thrive on success!
