"QUEST Inc. is dedicated to providing vocational and life skills, which empower people with disabilities and other vocational disadvantages to achieve a quality of life of their individual choosing."
QUEST, Inc. has its roots in the movements of the 1950ís. It was a time in which facilities and programs flourished in communities in an effort to respond to populations of people that were deprived of education, vocational, social and community opportunities because they didnít fit the existing systems. Initially the agent was incorporated under the name of the Lebanon County Workshop, Inc. As time passed and thinking and findings in the field of vocational rehabilitation changed, the agency changed, as well . In the process of these changes the focused moved from that of a " sheltered workshop" to that of a comprehensive vocational rehabilitation agency. In 1995 our name was changed to QUality Employment Services and Training, Inc.; or QUEST, Inc., which was in keeping with the emerging programs and services being offered by the agency.
Today, QUEST offers options for people with disabilities that include specialized occupational training, extended work in the industrial training facility, job placement and employment services, and expanded community integration efforts and opportunities. With over fifty years of providing Community Benefit, vocational rehabilitation, training and work experiences, and employment opportunities for people with disabilities, QUEST, has become a major provider of vocational programs and services for residents of the Lebanon County Area. QUEST Inc., is a licensed vocational rehabilitation agency licensed by the Department of Public Welfare 2390 Regulations for Vocational Facilities. As a Community Benefit agency, QUEST Inc., is a member agency of the United Way of Lebanon County.
