Who We Are
The Stoneleigh Foundation was founded in 2006 by John and Chara Haas to improve the life outcomes of Philadelphia's most vulnerable youth. We meet our mission by awarding Fellowships to exceptional leaders who advance change in the systems that serve these young people.
We seek to improve life outcomes for our community’s most vulnerable youth by advancing change in the systems that serve them. Because we believe that youth are best served when systems work together to holistically address their needs, Stoneleigh prioritizes work designed to strengthen coordination between or among these systems.
We award two types of Fellowships to exceptional individuals who work within and alongside youth-serving systems to catalyze change. Our Fellows undertake projects that enhance how systems work together, improve practice, and generate new knowledge through action-oriented research.
