Who We Are
Keystone Human Services works to create an environment where all people, regardless of ability, can grow, make choices and be valued and contributing members of the community.
What We Do
Keystone Human Services provides community-based services for children, young people, adults and families in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and Connecticut, as well as parts of Russia and Moldova. We provide services in the areas of intellectual disabilities, autism, mental health, early intervention, and children and family services.

The World Health Organization and the World Bank have partnered to produce the first ever World Report on Disability. The data shows that over one billion people are currently experiencing disability, and the report provides important evidence about effective methods of supporting people with disabilities and their families. At a time when many countries are taking steps to implement the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, this report will make a significant contribution to human services across the globe.
Until Kirby's puppies are eight weeks old, you'll be able to watch them grow. These pups will be eating, sleeping, growing, playing, and exploring their world live on the puppy cam. Each step they take brings them closer to becoming service dogs and changing lives.
Cartridges 4 Canines
Reduce your office clutter and turn your trash into treasure by participating in Cartridges 4 Canines, a fundraising initiative to benefit Susquehanna Service Dogs. The Keystone Partnership is partnering with Higher Information Group to launch this used ink and toner cartridge drive, which channels environmental awareness to generate financial support for the significant services provided by Susquehanna Service Dogs. Individuals and companies in Central Pennsylvania can arrange for regular collection of their used inkjet and toner cartridges by Higher Information Group or other Keystone volunteers, and all proceeds from the recycled cartridges will go toward the breeding, training and placement of service, hearing and therapy dogs for children and adults with disabilities.
