I am a new intern at the Human Services Center. Although I don't have much experience in the field the staff at HSCC have made me feel welcome and confident in my abilities. From my short time here I am able to see that teamwork is an important asset that everyone shares. By working together the HSCC team is able to provide services, fill gaps, and effectively help their clients.

I first met Alicia while I was volunteering in the kitchen of the Senior Center. She was behind that smiling face, always hurrying about. She could be seen behind a paint brush or a computer. I didnt know at that time why she was always in a hurry. Then I became a part of their team as a Senior Aide. On my first day, Alicia said that I will be surprised at all that takes place in our buildings and boy was I ever. I had no Idea that all this help was provided here. we have help for the youth the young youth as well as the teens. We also help women and children who are dealing in some way with drugs and abusive. The people who need help in other ways also receive guidance if we can not directly help them. I am glad to be a small part of this large program.

The Human Services Center has help throughout the years by keeping me out of trouble, and helping me prepare for my future. It also has provided a variety of activities for people to be involved in such as field trips, afterschool activities, and guest speakers. I am in a program at the center called ELP(Emerging Leaders Program). This program helps me learn more about math, reading, and all sorts of things that will help in the future of my life. This is the reason in my opinion I think HSCC is a great place.

Once I came here i was not sure that i was going to like it but then things turned around for the better.The Human Services Corporation has been a life changing experince for me for alot of different reasons. It has help me be better prepared for applying for a job anywhere, and the appropriate way to do so. I have larned alot here and I know it will help me in the long run. It feels easier to apply for a job and be interviewed by anyone who might interview me. This place has made me grow, and thats a great thing for a nonprofit orgnization to have such a outstanding quality.

My first professional work experience was an internship with the Human Services Center Corporation. Perhaps the most valuable lesson learned is the importance of the planning process. Thinking through goals and objectives to solve problems and reach goals, then developing leadership skills to implement the plan, are useful tools no matter where life takes you. The Human Services Center is a unique organization that serves many people successfully due to excellent administrative leadership. I’m grateful for my experience there.

The Great!

I recently joined the Human Services Center as an AmeriCorps Health Corps volunteer. With little prior experience in this field, I was immediately welcomed by the entire team. In the short time I have worked with this organization, I've been able to benefit from countless opportunities for professional and personal growth.

I have been interning at the HSCC since June of this year. The past 5 months have been very fulfilling and educational as well. I feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful organization to be a part of. The staff is friendly, extremely hard-working, and supportive of one another. It has been an experience I will not soon forget.

learning from the staff and watching their endless efforts to improve their communities, as well as neighboring communities.

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

phenomenal. Everyone is so dedicated and hard-working, yet they are very fun and friendly as well. They are all just wonderful people who are willing to help anyone who needs it, and I admire all of them very much.

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

Impossible, my experience was fantastic.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the big move...It has been a challenge because there is still work to be done, but the new building across the street isn't going to get itself ready so it's a lot to juggle. But somehow they make it look easy.

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

I feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful organization to work with. My internship has been the experience of a lifetime and I am very thankful for the opportunity the HSCC has given me.

I have worked with the HSC in a variety of capacities for the last nine years. They are an incredible organization, which works to serve both the needs of the non-profit member agencies, as well as the needs of the community. The Executive Director takes great pains to teach his bevy of interns the skills they need to operate in the non-profit world, as well as promoting leadership in the next generation. He is free with his advice and is willing to go the extra mile (and show a little leg) in order to raise funds, awareness or create new programming. The staff are extremely dedicated to serving the needs of the member agencies and the community, and that shows in their dedication and long hours.

The Great!

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

Several hundred people receiving information about how to purchase their first home, predatory lending, insurance, tenants rights and credit counseling at the Home Sweet Home conferences. Member agencies learning about resources for their clients. Children having a safe and affordable place to go after school and during the summer months. The food pantry, planned parenthood, WIC, Children's Hospital and TCVMH/MR all under one roof in a "one stop shop". Membership feeling true ownership of the committees and initiatives. Interns who have gone on to work in the non-profit arena with great skills that they learned here. An incredible staff who work hard to get the job done, but still seem to enjoy the work they are doing. This non-profit is one of the few that provides the services of a non-profit, while operating with a clear business sense. They truly demonstrate that while it is important to have heart, it is equally important to set and follow rigorous standards.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

probably call Dave for advice every day.

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

Dave, Alicia, Leah, Lauren, Lynn. Truly a wonderful group of dedicated individuals. Being involved in making the Mon Valley a better place to live and work.

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

See above; they are incredible!

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

Truly change the face of the Mon Valley. It could continue to provide connections between member agencies, while having the funds necessary to plan, form and impliment new programs.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of any way it could have been better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Participant apathy. It is hard to work for months to plan an event that meets an obvious need in the community, only to have a poor turnout.

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 communities that compose the Mon Valley and with partner agencies.

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

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...

Further expand it's programs, services, building space, and staff. Further expansion means more people are helped in more ways.

Ways to make it better...

There is nothing negative about working with this wonderful organization.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

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 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.
