PHILLIPS Family Partners Named an Exemplary Initiative
PHILLIPS Family Partners was proudly recognized by the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) for providing an exemplary youth program that help vulnerable youth thrive. PHILLIPS Family Partners was one of only 15 programs recognized nationwide and the only program recognized in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area.
Family Partners, PHILLIPS Programs community service program offering home-based and therapy services for youth and families, was selected because it exemplified CSSP’s Youth Thrive™ framework, an approach that calls for developing five protective and promotive factors in young people in order to move beyond reducing risks to promote healthy development and well-being. Programs were selected out of more than 130 nominees and were chosen after a rigorous review that included a detailed written application, extensive site visits and interviews with youth, families and staff.
