Our History

The Beaver County Rehabilitation Center began in 1962 as the William Lintz Sheltered Workshop. Established by William Lintz, Sr., it was the first day program in Beaver County for adults with intellectual disabilities.

In 1971, the William Lintz Sheltered Workshop was renamed the Beaver County Rehabilitation Center.

Today, BCRC serves hundreds of people and operates out of multiple locations—two in Beaver and one in Center Township. The agency offers a wide range of services to help people with intellectual, developmental, psychiatric and co-occurring disabilities secure employment, work toward recovery, achieve increased independence, and participate in their communities.

Although BCRC has expanded significantly since its inception, the agency remains driven by its mission to provide opportunity for growth and independence, while respecting the dignity and uniqueness of each individual it serves.
