We envision a community where people are valued and respected, and live with dignity.

It is our Mission to provide an environment of support and empowerment where people can improve their quality of living.


Bell Socialization Services, Inc. began in 1966 as “The Bell Club,” a social gathering for people being discharged from local psychiatric hospitals into the greater York, PA community.

Over the years, services evolved and expanded and, in 1977, programs were added to assist individuals with intellectual disabilities. In 1986, the agency added shelter services to meet the needs of York County’s homeless families.
