I have a brother who has been involved in the Arc of Westmoreland workshop and now in a group home they manage. The experience and wonderful care is beyond the family's expectations. The professionalism of the staff in all aspects of caring for him put our mind at ease knowing he is being treated with dignity and respect.

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.

I am an ACHIEVA trustee and my sister is a long-term ACHIEVA client. I always admired and appreciated the caring ACHIEVA staff where my sister works, but as a Trustee, I am equally impressed by the forward-looking approach on the part of the ACHIEVA leadership. ACHIEVA is a jewel and we are so fortunate to have this organization in the Pittsburgh region.

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.

As a trustee, I am proud to be associated with ACHIEVA. Many times have I been thanked by folks when I mention my board position. As service recipients, they appreciate the assistance, support and clear information that has been provided to them. It is so rewarding to hear from those who ACHIEVA is designed to support verifying and praising the organization from every level. It's good to know people are getting the supports that they need and reinforces my commitment to this organization.
