General Information / Administration

Our name means dedication to improving the lives of Perry County’s residents, their families, and their communities.

A History of Growth
PHS began operations in 1974 to provide counseling, information and education, as well as drug-free alternative activities to area young people. Over the past three decades, our programs have expanded to meet the county’s need for drug and alcohol services, adult social services, and educational programs in the schools and in the community.

Solid Organization
PHS is a non-profit community-based organization offering a full range of personal and confidential assistance programs to individuals. A board of directors, comprised of volunteers from all parts of the county, oversees PHS operations. All board meetings are open to the public.

Creativity for the Future

Serving one of Pennsylvania’s fastest growing counties requires PHS to continually evaluate and improve the services we offer. We pride ourselves in our creative programming as we strive to meet each individual’s needs. Our ability to offer innovative approaches to solving personal problems is crucial as the county’s growth creates new and more challenging demands for service.
