Connecting People and Potential

At Benchmark Human Services (Benchmark), we help support people throughout life, from infancy to elder years. Our team is 3,400-strong and serves more than 10,000 children and adults throughout the United States.

We work with people at home, at work, and in the community, through residential, employment, crisis response, behavioral, recovery, children’s services, and day services. Through all of our services, we aim to help people find stability and reach their full potential.

Founded in 1960 and headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Benchmark has grown to become one of the most respected organizations in the country in the areas of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and behavioral health.

In addition to our work with individuals, Benchmark offers Active Consulting for state governments and private organizations. Our 60+ years of experience as a service provider uniquely prepare us to provide hands-on support for our partners, focusing on systems design and development, best practices, provider capacity building, facility evaluation, and staff training.


Our mission is to help people live as independently as possible, be included in the community, and reach their full potential.


At Benchmark, we want the people we serve to enjoy the best health possible, be safe in all activities, and be respected in all aspects of life. These values are the foundation of everything we do.

Ensuring the health, safety and respect of individuals we serve is a process we follow every day by individualizing services for the people we support, hiring the right employees and training them to implement and maintain our processes and high standards, and by conducting regular monitoring and measuring of these processes and standards.
