Who owns and operates Presbyterian Homes & Family Services and the Family Alliance?
While Presbyterian Homes & Family Services was originally founded by the Presbyterian Church, it is now an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. PHFS and the Family Alliance merged in July 2010. It is a public charity and all contributions qualify as tax deductible as outlined by the Internal Revenue Service.
Who is eligible to receive help?
We help children, adults and families in communities throughout Virginia. We work with moms prenatally, infants, toddlers, children, teenagers and adults. We also work with the families of those we serve, especially those families who have adults in our residential care. We do not discriminate on gender, race, politics or faith. We provide services to people from all walks to life and provide help regardless of the ability to pay.
What services are available?
Our programs and services focus on five areas: Early Childhood Education, Economic Empowerment, Mental Health, Residential Care and Safe & Healthy Living.
How is Presbyterian Homes funded?
We rely on the generosity of churches, foundations, businesses and individual donors and some state and municipal funding to meet the needs of those in our care. Some of our programs also rely on grant funding.
It varies depending on the program. Some individuals are with us for our eight-week parenting classes, others are with us for years. There is no maximum length of stay for adult residents in our care. Many families in our Healthy Families program are with us for more than five years -- from prenatally to a child's fifth birthday.
What are some needs of the adult residences at PHFS and the Family Alliance?
