Developmental Program

The Developmental Program Services Division of Catholic Social Services offers persons with developmental disabilities a continuum of care designed to enhance their quality of life by promoting individuality, empowering personal choice, promoting dignity and respect, and nourishing a family spirit rooted in Christian faith and values. Dedicated caring religious and lay staff enable these special persons to flourish, to find happiness with dignity, and to participate in the mainstream of society. The division manages residential and community-based programs for adults and children who are developmentally delayed, in partnership with state and county offices of Developmental Programs and Philadelphia's Department of Human Services.
