About Us

Kelsch Associates, Inc.


Kelsch Associates, Inc. was established in 1977 as a residential service provider for adults with developmental disabilities and/or mental illness. Our contracts lie with the County of Chester and the MH/IDD Board.

Kelsch Associates, Inc. is a family-run business. Both consumers and staff feel like they are a part of the “family”. A major benefit to the consumers (and staff) is the longevity and accessibility of our administrative staff. A consumer once noted that she wouldn’t change her service provider because there was no where else that she could go where the Executive Director would know her by her first name. Every consumer involved with Kelsch Associates, Inc. is treated as an individual. We pride ourselves in knowing the intricacies of each person.

We have a true “open door” policy. We serve anyone. We are advocates of consumer choice. We recognize that within that advocacy a consumer also has the right to experience some failures in their life. It has been noted by many that we are “fair”. We go out of our way to listen to all sides of an issue and recognize that there’s more than one way to do things.

We pride ourselves in being able to provide quality service by listening to our consumers and helping them to achieve their dreams in the safest, least restrictive and dignified manner possible. Our name is on the business. Anything we do is a reflection upon us. Consequently, we are always looking to do the “right thing” for those we serve.

Over the years, we have expanded our scope of services to include not only typical residential services (both CLA and CRRS), but also Family Living services and Adult Day Support (Adult Training Facility) services. 

Our residential sites are located throughout Chester County and incorporate various levels of consumer supervision. 

Our Adult Training Facility (i.e. Adult Day Support Center) is currently located in Exton. We provide a variety of activities at the facility which include, but are not limited to, skill building, socialization, community interaction and vocational training. We are dually licensed by (2380 Regulations) and the State Department of Aging (PA Title Code 6, Chapter 11).

Presently, we serve approximately 115 consumers in our residential facilities and about 20 consumers in our ATF programs.
