Committed to Care

Lawrence County Association for Responsible Care (LCARC)
is a nonprofit Agency located in New Castle, Pennsylvania
and is the largest provider of community and residential services
for individuals with intellectual and developmental
disabilities, including autism, in Lawrence County.


Our Agency is committed to providing quality care; through advocacy, support, education and services we aim to limit the consequence of intellectual and developmental disabilities. We believe all people must have the opportunity to recognize and choose their own goals. Our services are based on the certainty that adults, regardless of ability, have the right to make personal choices concerning where they live, how they learn, where they work, and how their time is spent.


We recognize the important role of families in making choices and decisions. At LCARC, we work closely with families to identify and meet the needs of the people we serve. In offering our services we strive for utmost quality and integrity. To do this, we focus on individualized planning and flexible support while respecting the dignity and rights of each individual in our care.


We are proud of the excellent reputation we have built and maintained in our community and among our peers. Our Agency consistently receives high accolades by the government agencies who oversee our operations. We are just as proud of our commitment to the future, ensuring that individuals and their families will continue to be offered the highest quality programs and services.

Let us help you find the services you need in order to provide the best care
for your loved one. We assist with waiver enrollment, coordination of medical and
psychological assessments, and are able to make recommendations appropriate for
the needs, goals and wants of the individual and their family.
