People Incorporated

A Human Service Agency


Our mission is to strengthen our community for each of its members by providing premier services for children and adults of all abilities in a collaborative and creative environment.

Here To Serve You

People Incorporated is a human service agency serving Southeastern Massachusetts, including the Greater Fall River, New Bedford, and Taunton areas.

Since our inception in 1968, we have been one of the largest providers of supports and services to people of ALL abilities in the community.  As a partnership of specialized, integrated programs, we provide unique opportunities to people with life challenges.  At the core of our agency is the belief that people benefit from the services we provide and deserve the highest level of quality support.  With over 870 dedicated employees, we believe this is accomplished through creating positive partnerships between our agency and the community.

 Please note the following road and parking closures near our headquarters in Fall River:

 Road Closure  

Due to an ongoing construction project in Downtown Fall River, Bedford Street will be closed periodically throughout the summer to all vehicles.  Please continue to check our website for details on closure dates as work progresses.  The shut down will occur on Bedford Street from Rock Street to the North Main IntersectionDrivers should use High Street if they are heading north and Third Street to get to the south end or to access 195 east/west.

 Parking Lot Closures

Throughout the summer, the People Incorporated visitor lot on Bedford Street may be behind road closure barriers.  If so, visitors to People Incorporated must alert and identify themselves to the detail police officer to gain access to the parking lot.  Due to traffic delays, we caution visitors to leave themselves plenty of extra travel time!  Please continue to check our website for details on closure dates as work progresses.  Until at least mid-August, the parking lot adjacent to the People Incorporated building at 4 South Main Street (located directly behind the United States Post Office located at 2 Government Center) is completely closed to all vehicles.

 Pedestrian notice

Due to the ongoing construction, pedestrians should take extreme care in the downtown area near our 4 South Main Street location as traffic patterns are expected to change often, and the roadways and sidewalks will regularly be disrupted.  We caution visitors to leave themselves plenty of travel time due to traffic delays in this area.

 Questions and additional information

The City of Fall River asks that drivers and pedestrians plan around this scheduled work to minimize delays.  Please contact us at (508) 679-5233 with any questions or the Fall River Traffic Department at (508) 324-2577 for construction related questions.  Thank you, and we apologize for any inconvenience.


For 50 years, People Incorporated has continued to take significant steps forward while maintaining a solid foundation.

As the synergy of our programs and services builds, the opportunities we create for children, adults, and families are boundless. 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.

We are and will remain the path of opportunity for many.
