PHILLIPS is a private, nonprofit organization serving over 500 children and their families in the Washington metropolitan area. For more than 40 years, we have helped children where others could not — to prepare to become independent, productive young adults.
Our Mission: PHILLIPS serves the needs of individuals with emotional and behavioral problems and their families through education, family support services, community education and advocacy.
Our Philosophy: Each child we serve is unique, and so is the combination of services we provide. Depending on the child’s needs, as well as input from parents, educators, agencies or other involved parties, we offer:
- Special Education Day Schools — Serving students from elementary grades through high school in two nationally-acclaimed facilities in Annandale, VA and Laurel, MD
- PHILLIPS Teaching Homes — Helping children with emotional and behavioral issues learn the life skills they need to be successful
- PHILLIPS Family Partners — Serving families and children with emotional and behavioral issues through home- and community-based counseling, education, family support and advocacy services
