Community Services

Our Community Services programs extend the PHILLIPS mission into the community, including northern Virginia and the Baltimore-Washington metro region.

PHILLIPS Family Partners helps families cope with and meet the challenges associated with their special needs children. Whether it be mental illness, behavior problems at home or school, developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorders or adjustment to traumatic life events, children and their families count on the support of expert staff to help them succeed.

PHILLIPS Teaching Homes is there when such children and youth have been removed from their families and placed in foster care. PHILLIPS Teaching Parents provide a safe, nurturing and therapeutic environment, giving special needs children and youth the care and treatment they need to thrive and return to their own families or to a healthy alternative environment.
