Gemstone Human Services provides services to a diverse population of individuals, including those diagnosed with Intellectual Disabilities, Developmental Disabilities, Autism, those with physical disabilities, and our elderly community. Individuals who receive Medicaid funding through the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP), as well as those who receive waiver funding through the Pennsylvania Community Health Choices (CHC) program, ACT 150, and OBRA, are eligible to receive our services.
