I have been a Board Member for Alleghenies UCP for over 2 years. This company runs better than most companies that I have been affiliated with. The leadership of the company from the director down is amazing. The company has picked up several more locations and continues to thrive. Through all of the issues with insurances and MCO's, this company has not only remained afloat, it has far exceeded other companies in the state. Alleghenies UCP definitely far exceeds any expectation that I have had.

I have worked with the agency since 2014. I have to say what a great experience it has been working for this company. Seeing how hard working the staff are daily, and to see the passion behind these coordinators is great. I really enjoy hearing the participants talk about how great the staff are when it came to getting an issue fixed, or just how good the participant feels that the staff call to follow up on how they are doing. I am proud to be apart of this team and I am looking forward to many more years of working with the team and helping with our participants.

Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy (AUCP) did way more than I thought was possible. I am paralyzed with my hips fused and have a traumatic brain injury. I have been with AUCP since about 2005 or 2006. I would suggest and recommend that organization to everyone with a disability, because of how much they did for me.
