Touch-Stone Solutions continuously strives to review and expand upon the innovative services and supports we employ, focusing on those things that are most successful. We envision collaboration with other service organizations and community resources to better benefit those we serve and to mutually address the demands of an ever-changing and more difficult "System." Touch-Stone Solutions recognizes and utilizes the experience and expertise of staff to constantly work towards exceeding regulatory and compliance standards. Touch-Stone Solutions advocates for those with Developmental Disabilities and supports their caregivers as they navigate their way through available community resources. Touch-Stone Solutions will identify, explore, and develop new and innovative services and programs to respond to community needs and client requests. Touch-Stone Solutions envisions a human services system that takes a proactive approach rather than reactive and crisis-driven as many of the hurdles that individuals encounter could be prevented or mitigated by this approach.

Mission: Touch-Stone Solutions supports and empowers individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in their efforts to experience productive and rewarding lives.

Itโ€™s National Pennsylvania Day!

July 20th recognizes the second state to join the Union. Once the home of the temporary capital of the United States in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is also known as the Keystone State. While the source of the nickname has been forgotten, the meaning is not lost. Bridge builders know leaving the vital keystone out of their structure would be folly, leading to collapse.

Join us as we celebrate National Pennsylvania Day by exploring the iconic, historic, and hidden treasures of this enchanting and complex state. Use #NationalPennsylvainaDay to share your experiences on social media.

IT'S FEEL GOOD FRIDAY!
It's a little chilly and not so seasonal but still..... Get outside! There is nothing like spring happening in our area of Crawford County! It has been another long week for some of us. Give yourself a break today. If you see a friend or colleague struggling, give them some words of encouragement. After all, we are in this together and it will end. Happy Friday.

Our Story

Touch-Stone Solutions is a not-for-profit human service agency operating in Northwestern PA. We offer programs that are multi-cultural, multi-generational and multi-dimensional while ensuring that our services are always client-centered, family-oriented, community based and holistic in nature.

We stand firmly on the premise that individuals, even those with disabilities, have the right to informed choices. We believe in and follow the concepts of positive approaches, always recognizing each client as an individual with hopes, dreams, abilities and feelings. Our ultimate goal is to empower every individual to take advantage of the opportunities available to them; opportunities to live as independently as possible, experience their community, make use of its resources and become an active participant in the community in which they live.

Touch-Stone Solutions believes that all individuals with Developmental Disabilities should have the opportunity to be assimilated into their respective communities without being stereotyped or stigmatized because of their disability. We continuously strives to review and expand upon the innovative services and supports we employ, focusing on those things that are most successful. We envision collaboration with other service organizations and community resources to better benefit those we serve and to mutually address the demands of an ever-changing and more difficult "System."

Touch-Stone Solutions advocates for those with Developmental Disabilities and supports their caregivers as they navigate their way through available community resources.

ELIGIBILITY and ACCESS:

Clients must have a diagnosed intellectual disability and be authorized for services by the local county Human Services program. For additional information regarding service eligibility please call us at (814) 336-6201 or email us at [email protected]

For the Adult Autism Waiver Services, call the Bureau of Autism Services (BAS) at 866-539-7689 and follow the prompts; you will be contacted by the BAS and sent an application.
