Keystone Human Services’ Intellectual Disability Services is dedicated to supporting people to live meaningful lives in the community. We encourage long-term relationships and stress the importance of natural supports, individuality, respect, choice, and the dignity of risk. In recognizing that people with disability are members of our society and can live successfully in their own communities, we have helped reunite families and strengthen relationships. We have seen friendships flourish where none had existed. We have seen people lead lives of tremendous richness rather than deprivation.
Our mission has remained constant: To act as a change agent, creating opportunities for growth and meaningful life choices so that all people can be valued and contributing members of their communities.
Dispelling the Myth
It was once believed that some people with very challenging behaviors could not be served in their communities. Keystone recognizes that these behaviors are often symptoms of trauma and other treatable causes and has demonstrated that with intensive therapeutic supports, people previously thought to be unable to leave hospital settings can be served safely and successfully in the community.
We believe that this has been possible because of the vision of Keystone Human Services. This vision has guided us since 1972 as we developed our services and worked to create a better and safer world for everyone.
