Since coming to Arch Street, my life has been transformed in many more ways that I can ever account. I have benefited from their services from being homeless and unemployed to finding employment and establishing a suitable residence. My whole outlook on life is more on life is more promising than ever before. I will always attribute my successes in life to Arch Street Center.

Hi, my name is Alfred Jackson and I like to get on the computer and talking on the telephone for medical purposes. Also, I like socializing with other people at the Arch Street Center.

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!
