The Ruth M. Smith Center continues its mission to serve dependent children, youth, families and the elderly. In our 91st year our professional staff serves up to 30 adults in need of assistance with daily living. Our campus houses three Personal Care Homes licensed by the PA Department of Public Welfare, providing economical, safe and supportive living for elderly and physically or mentally challenged adults. We give assistance in a home like atmosphere to those who need care beyond the basic necessities of food and shelter such as medication administration and assistance with daily living skills. Our residents work and socialize in the community enjoying an enhanced quality of life. This year we have added a respite program to help give a needed break to those who care for loved ones in their home.
