About Arch Street Center

Arch Street Center is a local Lancaster charity whose continuing mission is to support the recovery of adults living with serious mental illness by providing social, moral and material support, recreational and hygiene facilities and fresh, nutritious meals in a safe, nurturing environment. They currently have around 300 members and serve approximately 45 individuals daily, or nearly 16,500 meals annually. Although there are other places in the city to find a meal, there is only one place to find integrated services all year long.

Peer support is at the core of mental health recovery principles. Arch Street Center provides a safe, judgment-free environment where members can feel safe expressing themselves, make and foster friendships and discuss their daily challenges, hopes and dreams. The members themselves become their own social support network, often filling a painful void left by family connections previously lost. Members at risk for social withdrawal, discrimination, employment limitations, homelessness and financial instability can find solace, encouragement, friendship, moral and material support through the connections they make at Arch Street Center.
