STEL is a private, non-profit agency that provides rehabilitative and support services to people with psychiatric disabilities. STEL is committed to helping recipients of services discover their goals and achieve them through progressive treatment and care. STEL operates on the principles of the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Model adopted from Boston University, which assures that people with a psychiatric disability possess the skills needed to live, learn, work, and socialize in their particular environment.
STEL was established in 1980 and serves four counties of Western New York: Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Erie.
In 1997 STEL began developing affordable housing for persons with special needs. STEL now develops housing in New York State and western Pennslyvania. See below for an overview of STEL affordable housing projects.
