Description

Welcome to Waystone Health & Human Services. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to serving those with disabilities and significant challenges.

We serve people across the lifespan, starting at the age of three and through the end of life. While we are known for serving people with disabilities, we support a growing number of people with brain injuries, medical and behavioral challenges, dementia, and veterans with service-related disabilities. Our services focus on the whole person by first addressing basic human needs and providing the tools and resources necessary for people to live and grow. Personal goals are then identified and tackled to ensure people thrive and belong in meaningful ways within their communities.

In more than 63 cities and towns across Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, you will find us in neighborhoods, businesses, community organizations, school districts, and higher education institutions. In our work, we are also committed to addressing economic, racial, and social inequities and creating positive change for those we serve and the communities in which they live and work.

At Waystone, we acknowledge and honor all individuals' fundamental values and dignity. We have always strived to create an ethical and compassionate environment that respects the diversity, traditions, and experiences of all we serve and employ.
