Devereux is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit providers of behavioral healthcare in the country. Across its national network, Devereux partners with families, schools and communities in order to help some of our nation’s most vulnerable individuals achieve happiness and personal fulfillment. We provide a continuum of care for children, adolescents and adults faced with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorders and mental health challenges, including psychiatric hospitals, residential and day treatment programs, community-based group homes, respite care programs, supervised apartments, foster care homes, special education day schools, and vocational and pre-vocational training. These programs and services positively impact the lives of thousands of individuals, and their families, each year.
Devereux is a leader in the use of evidence-based practices to support specific populations of children and youth in need, including children and adolescents with emotional and behavioral disorders, children and transition-aged adolescents on the autism spectrum, LGBT youth, and victims of child sexual exploitation and other trauma-inducing experiences. Devereux also provides services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through a variety of employment, recreational and community-centered activities.
Directed by prominent Philadelphian Sam Katz of History Making Productions, the film honors Miss Devereux’s legacy and highlights the tremendous growth Devereux has achieved across a century of service.
