Our Mission

LifePath provides the highest quality of services to people needing specialized supports through the blending of professional knowledge, arts and skills in an environment of unconditional respect and dignity.

Our History

LifePath, formerly the Community Foundation for Human Development, was started in 1974 by a group of parents from the Pennridge area who wanted more individualized care for their special needs children. LifePath's dedicated pediatric facility, Ridge Crest, was opened in Sellersville as a place where medically-fragile and technology-dependent children and their families could find the help they needed. Soon after, residential housing was established for adults with developmental disabilities as the transition from institutionalization to community-based supports continued. LifePath's programs and services revolved around one common theme — to provide individuals with the highest quality care possible in an environment of unconditional love, respect and dignity.

From 1987 through 1993, LifePath continued to grow. We established an adult day program, vocational services program, intensive supports program and a laundry training program. These programs work with the existing skills and level of ability of each individual to help give these special individuals a sense of accomplishment, confidence, self-worth and independence.

In the mid-1990s, LifePath obtained a license as a community mental health center and opened outpatient psychiatric clinics in Bucks and Delaware counties. Both centers are open to the general public, not just residents of LifePath. These services were met with overwhelming enthusiasm and resulted in the addition of adults with autism to LifePath's adult day programs.

Today, LifePath has more than 100 community living arrangements and program sites throughout Bucks, Berks, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Montgomery and Northampton counties in Pennsylvania. LifePath provides services without regard to an individual’s race, color, sex, disability, handicapping condition, religious creed, ancestry, national origin, age or ability to pay.
