More than 350 guests gathered at the National Constitution Center in historic Philadelphia for Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Pennsylvania’s 20th annual Hope Gala to raise critical funds for children, adolescents and adults living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.

Thanks to the overwhelming kindness and generosity of our sponsors, volunteers and attendees, we are able to continue ‘fostering independence’ in those entrusted to our care – helping them become more productive and socially-connected members of their communities,” said Devereux President and CEO Carl E.
