explore Maximizing Potential Devereux's broad approach to behavioral health services opens doors of opportunity for those with special needs. ★ From far left: caring for people of all ages; (far right) Annie and Amy Kelly 112 JUNE 2014 Serving individuals with special needs for more than 100 years, Devereux continues to be guided by the philosophy that all people, however challenged, have unique talents and potential, and given support and opportunities, can realize personal achievements across all stages of their lives. Devereux was founded in 1912 in a single classroom in Philadelphia by pioneering public school teacher Helena Devereux. Now, a century on, Devereux Pennsylvania thrives as part of Devereux's national network of comprehensive behavioral health services in 11 states, and serves more than 20,000 individuals and their families every year. Operating from four large centers and a wide array of community-based settings, Devereux Pennsylvania provides a continuum of care for children and adolescents with significant mentalhealth challenges, as well as individuals of all ages with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Devereux Pennsylvania also specializes in serving those with autism spectrum disorders. Devereux's continuum of services meets families where they need support - in community and educational settings, employment services, foster care, community- or campus-based living, and even psychiatric hospital services. Programs emphasize community integration, so that people of all abilities have the opportunity to build their social and living skills, as well as have meaningful involvement in their communities and with their families. "Our focus on family engagement and helping people in the setting that directly meets their needs is at the center of our work, and is a tangible part of Miss Devereux's legacy," says Carol Oliver, Pennsylvania state director and vice president of operations.
