Benchmark Human Services


Benchmark Human Services offers cost-effective solutions to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and those with mental illness and serious emotional disorders in community-based settings.

Most recently, Benchmark expanded its services in several ways: In community-based residential services, we increasingly focus on supporting individuals with the most intensive medical and behavioral challenges, including those with forensic backgrounds and co-occurring (dually diagnosed) conditions. In large-scale mobile crisis systems, where Benchmark is one of the country's most experienced operators, Benchmark now serves individuals with mental illness and serious emotional disorders, as well as persons with developmental disabilities who are experiencing a behavioral health crisis.

Benchmark and its parent agency AWS have successfully transitioned over 400 people from state-operated facilities to community residential settings and enabled numerous states to meet Olmstead and Department of Justice (DOJ) commitments.
