Bell offers housing supports across all three of our main service departments.
HOMELESS If your family or a York County family you know is homeless or facing homelessness, our shelter services team at Bell Family Shelter can talk with you to determine options and resources.
MENTAL HEALTH Various housing options are available to support individuals living with mental illness. Referrals are typically made through the York/Adams office of mental health and intellectual and developmental disability (MH/IDD).
INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY Bell’s Intellectual Disabilities Residential Program maintains 13 community living homes in locations throughout York and Adams counties. Each neighborhood location is staffed 24/7 with caring professionals who empower residents to develop basic living and socialization skills.
Bell offers many programs to help people set goal plans, access resources, and take the necessary steps to improve their quality of living. Here are just a few:
COMMUNITY TREATMENT Bell’s Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team is outreach-oriented, offering mobile treatment and case management for adults with severe and/or persistent mental illness, complete with rehabilitative support and psychosocial services.
S.E.L.F. The Support Empower Living Fundamentals program assist individuals with intellectual disability who currently live either on their own or with their family. Staff provides one-on-one service to meet the individual needs of each person whether it be basic hygeine or shopping and preparing nutritious meals.
VOCATIONAL Supported employment programs help service users look for suitable jobs, prepare for interviews, and identify and develop the skills they need to allow them to be part of the competitive work force. We welcome inquiries from local businesses interested in more information on hiring participants.
BRIDGE Homeless families demonstrating a strong commitment to their goal plans receive guidance from dedicated staff for up to one year in the Bridge Housing Program so they can transition into safe, permanent housing.
