Beaver County Rehabilitation Center, IncAlternate Name / Acronym
The Beaver County Rehabilitation Center, Inc. (BCRC) has expanded significantly since its inception, however, the agency remains driven by the mission statement to provide the opportunity for growth and independence while respecting the dignity and uniqueness of each individual.
BCRC offers a wide range of services to help people with intellectual, developmental, psychiatric and co-occurring disabilities to secure employment, work toward recovery, achieve increased independence, and participate in their communities. These programs are guided by values of promoting growth and community membership through person-centered, strength-based, innovative approaches.
Our vision is to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate fully in employment and community life.History of Organization:
