The Official Publication of The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits
A look back at our founder, Helena Devereux, and her legacy in providing a century of service. Helena first began providing critical services to children in need over 100 years ago. Since then, Devereux has grown into an award-winning, non-profit behavioral organization that now spans eleven states across the country and impacts tens of thousands of lives each and every year.
In 1967, the Devereux Foundation opened a day school in Scottsdale, Arizona to educate children and adolescents with special behavioral needs. In 1979, the residential treatment center opened to serve youth in need of 24-hour secure treatment. From 1980 to 1990 five therapeutic group homes were added. Traditional outpatient services were acquired in 1994. 1998 saw the addition of a broad-based continuum of child welfare and juvenile justice services, as well as a large therapeutic foster care program in southern Arizona. In addition, we offer regular foster care services throughout Maricopa and Pima Counties, serving more than 350 children in the CPS system. The Devereux Arizona - Richard L. Raskin Treatment Network provides an array of behavioral health and social welfare services for children, adolescents and families.Give a Donation
