People Inc. is the leading non-profit human services agency serving Western New York and the Greater Rochester region. Through a variety of services including residential, employment, community outreach, health care and recreation programs, we help older adults, families and people with disabilities live more healthy, independent and productive lives.

Our History

In 1970, a small group of parents and professionals joined together to address the needs of individuals with intellectual disabilities and formed what would grow to become People Inc. The agency expanded its mission to include a wider variety of services to address the needs of people with developmental disabilities and disabling conditions, as well as the general public. Over the years, People Inc. has grown greatly in numbers of populations served, spectrum of services, geographic locations, and number of sites.

Our Vision

People Inc. is working toward a future where all persons whose needs limit their integration into the community can reach their highest level of human potential as responsible members of society. It is hoped that these individuals will, to their potential, be contributing and active members in their communities, enjoying the greatest possible degree of independence and acceptance, in all aspects of their lives.

Our Mission

People Inc. exists so that individuals with disabling conditions or other special needs have the supports they need to participate and succeed in an accepting society.

Our Values

Improving Lives, Respect, Integrity, Relentless Pursuit of Excellence, Diversity and Inclusion, Flexibility and Creativity
