Since 1963, the PA Elks Home Service Program has been helping to improve the quality of life for thousands of children and adults throughout Pennsylvania. We provide support and advocacy services to individuals of any age who have a developmental disability.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Elks Nurses have continued to provide essential support to the persons we serve. To create the safest possible environment for our clients and staff, they have been contacting individuals and families via phone, internet and social media. When agreed upon by both client and nurse, they can provide home visits using masks and social distancing.

Services are provided:

  • by a specially trained licensed nurse
  • to Pennsylvania residents
  • in the person’s home environment
  • without discrimination
  • at NO CHARGE
