Company Overview

Benchmark Human Services
Benchmark Human Services' development began in 1957 when a community volunteer committee, which would ultimately become the United Way of Allen County (Indiana), launched a study about providing work-related services for individuals with disabilities. From that study, an organization was founded in 1960 that would later become known as Anthony Wayne Services (AWS).
