Since 1972, Keystone Human Services has been advocating for and with people with disability. From our origins supporting people to leave the Harrisburg State Hospital in Pennsylvania, we made a commitment to walk beside all people as they leave institutions, move into the community, and pursue their goals of home, work, and school.
Our history has been marked by innovation and collaboration as we have expanded throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, New Jersey, Moldova, and India. Although we are physically located in these places, we have built relationships and connections across the world as we share our expertise, learn from others, and join the global movement of inclusion, working to create a world where all people belong and enjoy their human rights.
We offer a broad array of services in the areas of intellectual disabilities, mental health, and autism. In addition, we offer Head Start services to over 1,400 children and families in Central Pennsylvania through Capital Area Head Start, and place life-changing service dogs with children and adults through Susquehanna Service Dogs. We offer technical assistance to governments, regulators, and other organizations, and provide educational opportunities to promote inclusion everywhere.
It takes many dedicated people to carry our mission forward and create an environment where all people can grow, make choices, and be valued members of the community. Celebrate with us as we reflect on some of our accomplishments over the past year and prepare to continue our journey as change agents working alongside people with disability to create a more inclusive world.
