Community Services

Community ServicesThe overall goal of Devereux’s Community Services Programs is to provide support, education and encouragement to children and adults with a wide range of mental, emotional and behavioral challenges and their families. Community Services are designed to empower individuals, providing them with the necessary tools to thrive and succeed within their own communities. The individual’s family and/or caregivers are integrated into the Community Services Programs to assist with the enrichment and well being of the individual.

The goal of Devereux‘s Community Services is to restore an individual’s sense of safety, security and self worth. Devereux achieves this goal by providing high quality, therapeutically intensive, coordinated, and community-based services to children and adolescents ages 2-21.

A brief overview of each program is provided below.  Follow the links to learn more.
