Programs

"Promoting Recovery, Sobriety, Supportive Relationships, and Community Integration"

The Behavioral Health Services component of the Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) manages 11 behavioral health treatment programs in the Delaware Valley. The mission of PHMC's Behavioral Health Services component is to help people of all ages develop the knowledge, skills, and supports necessary to: recover from and manage emotional and behavioral issues; promote sobriety; choose and maintain healthy lifestyles; and develop healthy relationships with peers, family and the community. PHMC's Behavioral Health Services programs work individually with clients to address all aspects of their addiction, mental illness, and/or abuse. Each program utilizes a comprehensive, holistic and culturally sensitive approach that focuses treatment on the emotional, physical, and spiritual effects of recovery from addiction or mental illness.

PHMC offers two programs that provide emergency assistance. Direct Emergency Financial Assistance Program (DEFA) caters to individuals with AIDS/HIV that need emergency housing, medication, and other resources. The DHS Emergency Fund provides assistance with the goal of providing stability for children in need.

PHMC offers a variety of programs that help children and adults manage environmental risks to their health. Asthma and lead poisoning affect a large percentage of children in the Philadelphia area. PHMC programs provide parents and caregivers of children with or at risk for asthma or lead poisoning numerous resources to help them raise healthy children. PHMC also works with Asbestos Project Inspectors around the city to curtail the risk of asbestos in the Asbestos Control Program.

PHMC provides a number of services that provide both caregivers and children with the resources needed to build healthy families. Services include individual and family therapy, foster care, and educational resources.

Throughout the years, PHMC has worked to promote wellness in our communities. Our program for expectant mothers, the Community Prenatal Care Programs, promotes wellness in infants and their mothers. Similarly, our HIV/AIDS programs promote wellness among those infected, or at risk of being infected with HIV/AIDS. Together, we can have a healthier tomorrow.

Injury Prevention PHMC offers two programs which work to reduce the incidence of preventable injuries among Philadelphia residents. PHMC's Pennsylvania Injury Reporting and Intervention System (PIRIS) works with young gunshot victims to analyze and prevent incident-causing behaviors. PHMC's Street Smarts program is a comprehensive road safety campaign that promotes safe driving habits.

PHMC provides intermediary services to a number of organizations. We have worked closely with local government and other organizations to facilitate various services, including acting as a fiscal intermediary and directing program operations. We help our partners focus on serving their communities by providing administrative capabilities. Currently we partner with the City of Philadelphia in the DHS Parenting Collaborative and the Out-of-School Time programs.

PHMC Health Care Centers are located throughout the city of Philadelphia and offer high quality health care to Philadelphia residents of all ages. PHMC's growing network of nurse-managed health centers includes the Mary Howard Health Center, Philadelphia's primary care center for the homeless, Rising Sun Health Center, a health center in Northeast Philadelphia, the PHMC Care Clinic, and Community Court, which provides services to the clients of Community Court. PHMC's health centers provide comprehensive primary health care, family planning, disease management, and social services to men, women and children.

A major metropolitan city, Philadelphia is home to a number of diverse communities. As the need for affordable, safe, and accessible care increases, PHMC and its affiliates continue to provide high quality services to these communities. We offer programs that specifically target Latino, African American and Asian American communities in Philadelphia. PHMC offers services in a wide array of languages, working across linguistic and cultural barriers to provide quality care and health education. PHMC programs also help former welfare recipients find employment and housing. Other programs offer help to adults and children having developmental delays. Additionally, we offer programs designed specifically for the LGBT, homeless, and AIDS/HIV communities.

A highly-skilled workforce is key to a healthy community. Through our comprehensive training program, PHMC offers a wide variety of educational and professional development opportunities to the region's public health professionals. We also provide specialized trainings and resources to help other nonprofits increase their effectiveness and enhance their capacity to deliver high-quality services. PHMC trainings help prepare and equip today's public health workforce and organizations with the tools to meet tomorrow's challenges with creativity and flexibility.
