Description

Person Directed Supports, Inc.
Welcome to Person Directed Supports where our goal is to provide essential resources and supports in a loving, caring environment to individuals with intellectual disabilities. Founded in February of 2000, PDS is proudly a family owned and operated not for profit organization. “There had to be a way to support people in a manner in which they had a positive, self-directed way of building a life that they wanted, a way to support people to build on strengths not their disability, a life in which they have people involved with them that they choose, a life in which they have people who want to be in their life and only rely on paid supports when needed. So in February of 2000 my wife and l gathered up some money and started a Pennsylvania not-for-profit agency that would focus on four principles.” Our team at Person Directed Supports comprises of caring and highly trained and educated professionals.
