Here To Serve You

For 50 years, People Incorporated has continued to move steadily forward while maintaining a solid foundation.

We are a forward-thinking human service agency staffed by caring people who are proud to create opportunities for children, adults, and families throughout Southeastern Massachusetts. We strongly believe in our mission, enormously respect the efforts of the people we employ and will continue to work tirelessly for the betterment of our community.


People Incorporated strives to create an environment where everyone can contribute; where hard work is rewarded and where professional growth and development is encouraged and supported. Staff working at People Incorporated make a significant impact on the people we support through our various programs.  

Individually and as a team, WE make a difference to people of all abilities! 


People Incorporated is highly recognized as providing comprehensive family and children's services throughout the Southcoast.  We are an organization that builds upon the strengths of each child, adult, family, and community through effective, accessible, fully integrated services and partnerships.

All of our services assist the entire family in meeting their goals.  We inspire children to reach their academic goals, families to bond, and communities to become stronger together.  Whatever concerns may be raised by an individual or a family - the support, education, and assistance they need can be found at People Incorporated!

CEO Message

Megan Scheffer
President & CEO

I am so proud to serve as the President & CEO of People Incorporated! 

Certainly much has changed since our founding in 1968, but we continue to develop our menu of supports for individuals with intellectual and cognitive disabilities including multiple areas of service that have grown dramatically, like supports for individuals with autism spectrum disorder, day services, residential services, transportation, and so much more. We are also expanding our brain injury services and ancillary supports including siting new ABI day programs and skilled nursing residences. Our Early Intervention Program has thrived, along with our many early education and care offerings, including our Preschool, Children’s Center, Young Parents’ Learning Center, Healthy Families, Welcome Family, and the list goes on.

This is an exciting time for People Incorporated, and we know that success is inevitable because of the combined strength of the wonderful people who comprise our staff and volunteers, and the Board of Directors who guide us.  Join us!
