Strawberry Fields, Inc. was founded in 1972 on a farm in Yarnell, Pa by parents and family members in response to the needs of their family members with disabilities. We are an organization that has been designed by and for those in need of programs and services. In all areas of programming, our various departments strive to provide services based on need and personal choice. We strive to empower the families and individuals we serve to make choices which lead to rich and rewarding lives.

Our dedicated employees make it possible for our consumers to have the support they need to achieve their goals. Approximately 190 full and part-time staff guarantee every day that those served by SFI receive the love, care and encouragement that our individuals deserve.

Our continued growth and success is due to the overwhelming support we receive from the Centre County community. We are most thankful for the ongoing support of time, talent and monetary donations we receive. This has resulted in many long term relationships with our local funders and community members. Strawberry Fields 44 year history in the community is what we build on for the future.

There continue to be many challenges for Strawberry Fields and its staff that include changing regulation, funding issues and many other daily hurdles to be overcome. With the help of our committed supporters made up of families, Our Board of Directors, local business, as well as other agencies, we will be able to fulfill our mission of empowering individuals and enriching lives.

We are empowered and strengthened by the support from the Centre County community. Thank you for all you do to help us improve the lives of others. Together we can make each day for those we serve meaningful, better and long lasting.
