Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

I have been in the business community and non-profit community in Pittsburgh for over over 30 years and have never run a cross a more efficient and professional organization such as Achieva. In addition, Achieva's combination of long range planning and advocacy are unparalleled. It is has been my honor to be associated with them during my career.
