Serving Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lebanon, Lancaster, Perry and York counties.
Mental Health Services
Volunteers of America of Pennsylvania provides services and supports to people in Dauphin County and Luzerne County with mental illness. We provide affordable housing and supportive living programs for people with a severe mental illness. Sometimes these individuals enter our services in nontraditional ways, maybe through homelessness, substance abuse, or tragically, the corrections system.
Volunteers of America works to prevent and end homelessness through a range of support services including eviction prevention, emergency services, transitional housing, outreach services and affordable housing. Once we engage homeless individuals, we stay with them for as long as it takes to return them to self-sufficiency.
