Established in 1963, PRS, Inc., is the premier nonprofit organization in Northern Virginia providing community-based services and supports for men and women in recovery from mental illness. All proceeds from the 14th Annual PRS Kentucky Derby Party benefit the programs and services offered by PRS.

PRS is a critical component of mental health services in Northern Virginia. This organization helps adults recovering from mental illness by providing them with case management, assessments and counseling, job training and career resources, supported housing, and other residential services. Their experience shows that, with appropriate supportive services, men and women can and do recover from severe mental illness, achieve self-sufficiency, and live fuller lives. PRS has facilities in Falls Church, Alexandria, and Reston, and will be moving its headquarters to the Tysons Corner area this summer.

Their Kentucky Derby Benefit is their ONLY annual fundraising event. With offices located throughout Northern Virginia, this event (held in Great Falls, Virginia) is attended by people from throughout the DC area, and it is highly anticipated by PRS supporters. All proceeds from the Kentucky Derby Benefit support the programs and services of PRS.
