The Human Services Center Corporation is one of the premiere human services organizations in the county and possibly the state. The staff is well organized, professional, kind, and genuinely concerned with increasing the well being of the consumers they serve in the 37 communities that compose the Mon Valley. Working with Dave Coplan is a great honor for me in that he is a highly knowledgeable, passionate, and phenomenal teacher. As a student intern, I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by a talented staff who works as a team at all times. I learn much on a daily basis in that my job as a program associate is very hands on. I get to see the effects of our programs and policies on a daily basis, and can say that they do make a difference in the Mon Valley.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The incredible learning experience which will prepare me for my career goals. I have also thoroughly enjoyed learning from Dave Coplan

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely friendly, warm, and welcoming. The staff is well trained, highly knowledgeable, and truly care about the community.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

There is nothing negative about working with this wonderful organization.

The constantly changing political climate, but the staff is well equipped to deal with the changes.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The Human Services Center is a fine model of how a non-profit agency should work.

It has been a pleasure to work with the MVPC Executive Director, Dave Coplan, over the last several years. We have been printing The Communicator from our presses at The Daily News in McKeesport, PA for several years now and I have dealt with Mr. Coplan personally. Dave and his staff are very good at what they do. Never have I had any issues about procedure in which we receive their copy (which is pre-written by his staff), or payment for the print production. His news copy is always provided to us in a timely manner in which we have plenty of time to print the product. Dave is very friendly and professional at the same time. My compliments to Dave Coplan and his staff for this unique cooperation. I look forward to the continued partnership we have servicing the MVPC and The Communicator.

It was a great pleasure to work with HSCC on health assessment and site survey automation project. They are good people - trustworhty, cooperative, dedicated and passionate about what they are doing. They are looking for new ways to improve their services, and that is how I got chances to work with them. For me, I learned a lot from them and actually feel very happy as I also did contribution to help the communities.

I had the pleasure of working with HSCC, their affiliates and their staff as a part of Jackson/Clark Partners' work on the GPNP 2007 pilot Voter Engagement Initiative, Everybody VOTE. Dave and the staff jumped ALL OVER this work, supplying some of our best practice programs and strongest support for the initiative. Their Voter Event Breakfast is a winner - I'd strongly recommend folks check it out on Wednesday, November 7 for an idea on a great way to encourage voter participation with your clients and members.

The Great!

the real improvements in the community they serve.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their enthusiasm, vision and competence from Dave on through the staff.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

head dude at the organization, a variety of staffpeople and a range of service recipients.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

let Dave give it away to some organization that he felt needs it more. But if they couldn't make use of it, he could make a hell of a positive difference in the Mon Valley, no doubt.

I am a recently elected board member, so naturally I am favorably impressed by HSCC. But my positive impressions of this organization date back many years. To me, HSCC has always been an exemplar for how a relatively small, grass roots organization can effectively utilize "big time" management and governance methods to achieve its goals ... building an endowment, strategically managing its portfolio of programs and finanances, serving as an advocate for its clients and the nonprofit sector as a whole, engaging the community in its mission, and securing the confidence of major funders. It is impressive. Kevin Kearns

The Great!

Excellence. We use this word all of the time but few really embrace the essence of excellence. I believe that the HSCC really embodies excellence in service. I have known Dave Coplan for many years and more recently gotten to know Alicia Andrews. I consider it an honor and a pleasure to work with both of these partners. I believe they look critically at social problems and service provision and strive to achieve excellent programming and community engagement.

The Great!

how the yearly housing forums have helped our clients access and maintain housing and our case managers learn more about resources in the field

funding is always a challenge

One thing I'd also say is that...

It's a pleasure working with this organization

I am a board director for the Human Services Center (HSCC). I am proud to be associated with all of the talented and committed board directors, volunteers, interns, and staff. When I began my career at Auberle in 1989, the HSCC was one of the first places I went to gather information on the community and innovative ways to positively impact it. Nothing has changed since then - as the HSCC is still a creative leader in the community!!
