coronavirus update

Updated 4/24/20 at 9:00 am


  • Excentia Human Services’ offices at Rohrerstown Road and Prince Street are currently closed.


We are sad to announce that we have made the difficult decision to cancel both of our spring events this year. Given the continued severity of COVID-19 and our commitment to protect the health and safety of our community, the following events are canceled:

  • Flamingle: originally scheduled for April 24, 2020, then rescheduled for June 19, 2020 – CANCELED
  • Carl J. Witmeyer Memorial Golf Tournament: scheduled for June 4, 2020 – CANCELED
  • Autism Community Meetings and Walk & Talk sessions are canceled until further notice.

Early Childhood Services

  • Excentia Human Services’ preschools will be closed until further notice. Tele-sessions are being offered.
  • In accordance with the Office of Child Development and Early Learning, Excentia Human Services’ Infant & Toddler Early Intervention program is now closed until further notice. Tele-sessions are being conducted with individual families.

Adult Services

  • At the direction of the Office of Disability Programs, Community Participation Supports (formerly known as ADS and IU) are closed until further notice.
  • All non-essential visits to Residential homes are prohibited until further notice. Residential teams will be sanitizing the 33 homes each night, in addition to cleaning throughout the day. They are also ensuring that all homes are sufficiently stocked with supplies.
  • Supported Employment Services is reaching out to any employers who are still operating to better understand what steps are being taken in the workplaces of those we support who are considered higher risk.
  • Communication Services are being provided remotely.
  • Behavior Supports and Home & Community Supports continue to operate.
  • We ask that non-essential travel for those we support be reconsidered. Until further notice, if anyone we support is planning to travel outside of the United States with family, they will need to remain out of all services for at least 2 weeks upon their return.

Things are changing by the hour and we know it’s a stressful time for everyone. As we have them, we will post any updates here and on our Facebook page. If you have any questions, please contact us at 717-519-6740 or email covidqanda@excentiahumanservices.org.



Excentia Human Services is a nonprofit organization in Lancaster County that provides services for people with developmental needs and autism throughout the lifespan. These services can begin at birth with therapeutic and educational programs for children and their families – some will use services for only a few months, and others until public school services start. Many return after graduation to utilize adult day services, employment services, or residential options.

"It is really helpful for a family to have a partner that will take them through a child or adult's whole lifespan."
