About Us


Founded in 2002, and located in the West Pullman / Roseland area, Phalanx Family Services provides services and programs towards the economic and social stability of families and youth ages 16-24. Phalanx is organized into two separate, yet collaborative, adult services and a youth services divisions. Both divisions focus on delivering positive life skills and job readiness coaching for both youth and adult populations, while providing traditional supportive social services. Beyond traditional social services delivery, both divisions seek to support participants by identifying jobs that lead to career paths.


The work is delivered by a compassionate and committed staff of 32 full-time and 10 part-time employees who work together in support of clients overcoming immediate barriers, while striving towards a greater pathway to achieving more systemic and sustainable growth. The Phalanx team is comprised of case managers, job developers, trainers, coaches who provide direct services and support staff, in addition to partnerships with community based organizations invested in this work.


The Phalanx youth division targets in and out-of-school youth primarily from low-income communities, confronted with many barriers in the areas of education, employment, and those who confront basic life challenges. Phalanx has served more than 10,000 youth since 2008.
