The Choice is Yours


The Choice is Yours (TCY) is an innovative diversion program for first-time, nonviolent felony drug offenders facing one to two year prison sentences.  Upon successful completion, the program offers graduates the opportunity to have their criminal records expunged, removing the stigma of a criminal record.

TCY is operated in partnership with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office (DA), Municipal Court and the Defender Association of Philadelphia (PD).   


  • One-on-one case management
  • Individualized service plans
  • Access to skills training and basic education services
  • Job search and job placement assistance
  • Community service placements


To be considered for TCY participants must be first-time, nonviolent felony drug offenders. Other criteria apply and ultimate eligibility is determined by the District Attorney’s Office; all TCY participants must be referred by the District Attorney’s Office.


There is no cost for those who qualify.
