Lancaster Crisis Intervention

Crisis Intervention is a 24 – hour emergency mental health service provided for persons experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal or homicidal thoughts. Crisis Intervention staff can assist in assessing what a person needs to alleviate the immediate crisis and then link them to appropriate services. This can be completed by phone, an outreach to the person’s location or the person coming to the office.

The Arc of Lancaster

The Arc Lancaster Lebanon assists people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and Autism and their families to navigate an often complex system by coming alongside and asking what makes a meaningful life and help identify what is needed to make that life happen (including, but not exclusively, services and supports). They believe a person with a disability has value and equal worth, and it benefits our community when people with disabilities are included. They work to counter the stigma that people with I/DD come upon daily and help overcome barriers to inclusion and achievement.

Arch Street Center

Arch Street Center is an independent non-profit offering a membership-based day program for adults living with serious mental illness. They provide a safe, caring, and judgment-free space with a focus on socialization, recreation, and empowerment. Many adults with mental health issues find themselves isolated, with few close friends or family to rely on and at a high-risk for being neglected or forgotten by the communities in which they live. At Arch Street Center members can meet with peers, form new friendships, relax, and enjoy themselves without the burden of stigma or other outside pressures. Their dedicated staff strives to create a welcoming, friendly, and respectful environment. They work in tandem with local, state, and private agencies to provide the consistent social support and positive human connections necessary for overall health and well-being. Since 1983, their main objective has been to support the entire person, body, mind and spirit, and to make the effort to understand each and every member’s unique, individual needs. They work hard to make Arch Street Center a place where our members feel they belong.
