By My Side Welcomes You

We are a grassroots  nonprofit organization that helps children and families grow by offering opportunities to socialize, play, and learn. We are a separately incorporated nonprofit operating within the authority of Atonement Church who shares our vision of creating a stronger neighborhood community by supporting families in their journey. All are welcome regardless of religious affiliation!

You can find us in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia at Atonement's back building.

PLAYGROUP - our heart & soul

We invite you to come join us! 

Our Playgroups provide a relaxed atmosphere where families find support in each other while children can safely explore & play!

Learn more about what happens in playgroup here.

Our families fund our playgroups through a suggested $5 donation. 


Bonus for sleep deprived adults......complimentary coffee or tea!

YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED! In the past 2 weeks, our boiler has cracked beyond repair and we had an electrical panel fire that has left us with no power & no heat!!! Our programming is on hold!
Please help us get the building that has been home to the hundreds of families we have & continue to serve over the past 14 years, back to full functioning.
If you have been part of our journey, you know how much this space means to our community!
Please donate what you can thru this GoFundMe and share far & wide so we can get back to doing what we love in the space that we love for many years to come! Thank you
Here's a little clip of our circle time in double time!
