The Faison Center's Partners


Education and Research Partners

The Faison Center is affiliated with two major university research partners – the Applied Behavior Analysis Program at Teachers College, Columbia University and the Department of Behavioral Psychology at Kennedy Krieger Institute. In addition to collaboration in research efforts, The Faison Center consults with both partners for support in student behavior plans and academic programming.

The Center's staff members also benefit from certification courses offered by the University of Richmond and The Florida Institute of Technology.

Community Partners

The Faison Center partners with several generous businesses in the Richmond area that contribute to our school in ways beyond financial needs. Many of these community partners allow students of our Life Skills & Employment Center to gain vocational experience, either through an internship, a volunteer position or a paid position. Other organizations regularly send volunteers to The Faison Center to interact with students, sponsor special activities, provide manual labor to keep our facilities updated, or host classes.

Current community partners in the Richmond area include:
