By Dennis Felty, President of Keystone Human Services
In 1968, I worked at the Harrisburg State Hospital where 3,500 people lived in the most inhumane conditions imaginable. Keystone Human Services was born out of that horror, and nearly 40 years later, I had the privilege of helping the last 15 patients return home. I locked the door of the hospital for the last time. For the first time in 150 years, there was no one on the other side of that locked door.
