The “director” is never there or does anything, other than treat people like trash, while padding their own pockets with your donation money from home. Classless, lazy, and bitter. High potential without them around.

I am an Arch Street Center member. The Center helps me to find the tools to become the person I am today. My family away from home. I am meeting good people that are healthier than myself being at the Center. I'm learning new things every day.

Arch Street Center provides vital services for adults living with serious mental illness. It is a safe space, where members can have access to recreational activities, opportunities to socialize, regular meals, and a feeling of belonging. The staff at Arch Street do their best to make members feel included, giving them opportunities to get involved with day-to-day operations in order to allow them to feel a sense of ownership of the center. As a board member, I am pleased to be able to support the mission of Arch Street Center and the necessary, often overlooked role it plays in our community.

Arch Street Center helps adults with mental illness feel part of a "family". Many of whom may not have their actual family in contact or close.
I have had the privilege of being a part of the annual fundraiser for the last 4 years. I also have met with many of the members on several occasions. It's a wonderful facility that fills a vital role in the landscape of Lancaster.

I learned about Arch Street about two years ago from some close friends. Since then, not only am I involved, I got my family involved too! This truly is a great organization that makes a huge difference in the lives of its members. Having mental illness is often stigmatized, and rarely understood. Arch Street gives members a place to go where they can interact with others, get a nutritious meal, and participate in fun activities.

I have been involved with Arch Street Center for years. They offer such wonderful support to a population that is so often stigmatized.
As a drop in center, they offer meals, socialization and a place members feel is more than a drop in center and more of a home.
It has been great to get to know the members and see how much Arch Street means to them!

Arch Street Center provides a vital service and fills a gap in mental health services in the Lancaster County mental health spectrum of services. ASC provides adults with mental illness with a safe and support place to exist and explore recreational opportunities. Through socialization, ASC members find a place to belong in the community.

I am happy to give of my time and resources to the mission of Arch Street Center. They provide a truly safe haven for adults with mental illness here in the City of Lancaster. Their center is much more than a drop-in, it is very much a home to the clients. They treat the individuals with kindness, respect, and so much affection every day. I urge everyone to consider supporting the very necessary work that Arch Street Center is doing for the mental health community in our City.
