The Shadowfax Corporation is a private, non-profit human services agency that supports individuals with disabilities. The Corporation was founded in 1985 to provide high quality and caring services to individuals with disabilities in residences throughout York County. We are governed by a volunteer board of directors representing a cross section of the York Community.
Shadowfax offers the most extensive and comprehensive programs of its kind in the York/Adams area. In 1986, the company supported 12 individuals in four homes. The residential services department now supports nearly 100 individuals in 27 homes throughout the county. Over 350 people are supported in a variety of day services that include: supported employment, job placement, vocational training, in home supports, community based programming, and life skills training.
Shadowfax partners with over 65 local businesses to meet their outsourcing needs. We offer quality, on-time production services in the following areas: packaging; office services; inspection, sorting and salvage; industrial operations; special projects; and custom and industrial engraving. Shadowfax also produces the beautiful Taste of York County gift baskets for any gift-giving occasion. We also make custom baskets to meet any need.
Shadowfax strives to provide individuals with a supportive environment which cultivates trust, open communication, and teamwork. This allows individuals the freedom to showcase their talents. We embrace and promote the values defined in Everyday Lives for each individual. These values are choice, control, permanency, security, freedom, prosperity, individuality, relationships, recognition, privacy, citizenship, and passion. We encourage each person to become an active member of their community through volunteerism, employment and recreational activities. Self-determination is the guiding tool for each individual to live life to its fullest.
Our team of dedicated and compassionate staff is chosen because of their deep desire to work in this field. They are partners with the individuals they support through offering guidance, love, and encouragement in an effort to help each person live a meaningful, enriched life. Shadowfax provides a wide variety of training opportunities for staff to instill the knowledge and tools needed to be successful. It is important for everyone at Shadowfax to be true to their self and others, to be authentic and committed to what they do, to be self-directed and to be a part of a strong team.
The York-Adams Mental Health/Intellectual Disabilities Program is currently the primary funding source for all services. Most referrals are made through this agency as openings become available within our programs. Personal Family Driven Support money can be used to purchase any day support service listed. Other funding sources for day supports include The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, private insurance and private pay. Contact Shadowfax for more information on the referral process.
