The A.R.C. Residential Program at Canal Road
located in York, PA is a 15 bed facility that serves youth who have mild to moderate mental health problems. Our long history of working with juveniles in conjunction with statistics and research we have completed while providing care, demonstrated that many youth being referred to our agency had special needs requiring additional care. We are not an RTF or medical facility and do not provide medical care as part of our service. These services are provided by community health centers or independent contractors who are paid by medical assistance for their services. However, extended psychological/psychiatric services are provided at this facility to lend support to both staff and students in dealing with the unique aspects involved with these students.
Herbert A. Schaffner Youth Center
provides services for short-term, shelter care to Dauphin County in Pennsylvania for dependent, pre-adjudicated and delinquent males and females ages 11 to 18 with a maximum of 24 beds. We will consider referrals from other counties based on bed availability and openings at the facility. We provide emergency care and short-term services in an open environment in accordance with the statutes and regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Closely supervised setting fosters the physical, intellectual, social and emotional support of the residents. It is designed to protect children and youth from abuse and neglect at the hands of others and from harming themselves.
If the outcome of our behaviors, actions, and attitude is good for the students, then it is worth doing. If the outcome of our behaviors, actions, and attitude is not good for our students then it is not worth doing. We are the role models for our students. Therefore our behavior, actions, and attitude must always be presented in a positive way.
