About 11 years ago my son was diagnosed with PDD-NOS. In an effort to learn all I could about disabilities and how to be a good advocate for my son, I looked into ACHIEVA. I've attended seminars over the years that have been professional and informative. The staff at ACHIEVA are always helpful, too. I love how ACHIEVA has changed with the times, now sending e-blasts with tremendously wonderful information. Thank you for being a terrific resource!

I have been employed by ACHIEVA (The Arc of Westmoreland) for more than 14 years. It is an agency that keeps employees focused on achieving goals. Its executive team recognizes the differences between managing and doing and continues to avoid managing by crisis for over 60 years even when "human service providers, such as ACHIEVA, are no strangers to uncertainty", according to our President and CEO.

She continuously thanks us "for the efforts we make every day to make ACHIEVA an organization of choice where our customers want to receive supports and where our employees want to work."

I see ACHIEVA's management team as "extra"ordinary folks who avoid overreacting and try to use a common sense approach to reach workable solutions to problems or events.

As the parent of a client being served through Achieva (Arc of Westmoreland), and as a Board member of the Arc of Westmorelannd I am filled with pride to see first hand the incredible work that Achieva and its affiliates provides. This organization is a blessing for all who are desperate for help, care , and compassion for themselves or their loved ones who are in need of special services. Thanks, Ron Toncini

I have served as a volunteer and trustee for many non-profits in many different cities over the years. My involvement with Achieva began in 2002 when I moved to Pittsburgh. The mission statement for the organization is as broad as any I have ever experienced. More importantly, perhaps, is the ability to execute consistently, efficiently and with efficacy to those it serves so that time and capital are leveraged to maximize assistance. I am proud to be associated with this fine organization and have observed first hand the many times we have made a difference in people's lives. Additionally, the Achieva leadership is highly involved in the local, state and national level to positively affect legislation and goverment budgets.

The fact that Achieva provides services to people with disabilities from the cradle to the grave is very special. Programs and services are geared toward participant and family needs, and supports are always available. There is no other agency that provides such comprehensive services.

The experience with Achieva and their affiliate company, Arc of Westmoreland has been unbelievably rewarding. The staff and management are very passionate and dedicated to serving the needs of those they serve. They change people lives for the better every day. I have seen it first hand and this is why I feel so privileged to serve on their Board.
