Great place to work. They consider your days for shifts of availability and the more you work the more hours accumulate for vacation.
So, my phone was out of order and my electric was out due to a recent thunderstorm. The office staff could not reach me for over 3 hours. All of a sudden, an office staff (Scheduler) arrives wanting to know if everything was ok. This company goes above and beyond and really cares about people with disabilities. I have heard of a story when a workers car broke-down and they walked to the Consumers house to make sure they were ok and provided the care needed. Many people in my town don't understand what its like to live alone and have a disability and to be completely reliant on someone or a company to just eat and live. This company goes beyond just basic needs for me and cares about me. Even a supervisor called me to make sure I am doing ok and took time to talk to me.
I have been with Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers for over four years. They really care about me and when they can't provide coverage for me in the home, they always find a way to find me a back-up person. Their caregivers, office staff and supervisors are the friendliest I ever had. They try so hard to involve me in activities, but my disability is tough to get out, but they still try. I had other agencies, but this one I would like to keep as long as possible.
I have worked for Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers for over twenty years.
When given the opportunity I enjoy interacting with our consumers and employees.
I like the people I work with and enjoy coming to work everyday.
As a DCW I love it when my consumer and I can have a good laugh together. One of my favorite memories is a consumer telling me that she doesn’t like to laugh in front of one of her neighbors. She went on to tell me that sometimes she “snorts” when she laughs and the neighbor told her it was unbecoming and not ladylike. So one day my consumer and I was out for a walk, her neighbor just happened to be coming in our direction. I bent down and whispered in my consumer’s ear “don’t snort”. We both started laughing and we both “snorted” from laughing so hard! The neighbor just walked by as if she was appalled at our laughter! My consumer and I still love to laugh and “snort” every chance we get!
"I am continually inspired by our diversity in thought, expertise, and outlook. At Unlimited Care, I know I have the freedom to cross intellectual boundaries and deeply engage in dialogue and projects on topics I’m personally passionate about and fit the mission. It’s a “choose your own adventure” environment rich with opportunities for real, meaningful impact.
As a recent corporate sponsor of this organization and a long-term vendor of services, I can honestly state how this organization has matured within the past several years. Their value, impact and keen sense of how to create sustainable services truly is noteworthy. Every quarter I come to meet there is an energy like no other within the walls of this organization. The staff truly are inspired and work hard for one common goal. To provide the best possible service in an efficient and effective manner. I am sure it is just a matter of time before we see them expand beyond S. Western PA. Great Job!
I found myself not being able to do more and more things for myself and Allegheny Unlimited Care Providers came to my rescue!!!!
The Agency goes above and beyond for their clients and they are making their way to being a vital part of the community. They have a passion for getting people together to help make a difference in peoples lives. They truly help individuals with disabilities live safely and stay as independent as they possibly can. They also have group homes with individuals who work in the community as well as go to day programs where they stay active and live a fulfilled life with staff that is more like family. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone!
The consumers come first. Always dealing compassionately and helping to keep their independence is our first priority.
The purpose and mission of Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers is one that can impact everyone, whether directly or indirectly. Their drive and ambition to help those in the community whether clients, employees or neighbors goes above and beyond what someone can imagine. Knowing this company and their goals for the past 8 years has changed how I view everyday life. They have instilled a new outlook on how every individual should be viewed.
AUCP gave me the wonderful opportunity to work in the activitities program as an intern. This experience was rewarding both professionally and personally. While all of the employees were invested in my education, they helped me learn about some managerial aspects of a nonprofit organization. Personally, I was welcomed with open arms by both clients and staff as a part of the AUCP family even though I could only be there for a short time. Everyone was truly dedicated to the mission and goals of the organization, and fully invested in the well-being of both the clients served and the employees. Great organization, and great people!
The positivity and growth that ALUCP brings to individuals within our community who are living with disabilities cannot be matched. Their caring staff, local fundraisers, and social outreach are all attributes that make ALUCP a nonprofit that I, personally, am proud to have donated to. Living in the Johnstown area, I have seen and spoke firsthand with the individuals who have benefitted from ALUCP's programs and services---and they have all spoke very highly about the healthcare, relationships, and genuine concern that ALUCP staff have given and shown to them. Understanding the specialized and ever-changing needs that the disabled community face is key in providing top-notch care to those individuals, and I truly believe ALUCP has done just that.
I have viewed this organization mature and grow (over the past two years) from a community perspective. This organization has emerged into one of the most innovative and worthwhile nonprofits within the region! Their contributions to our community are very impressive and they operate very quietly and without fan-fare.
Their staff seem to be totally engaged and care for the community and one another. Can't wait to see what they do next!
I worked for a couple of different personal care agency's I also worked for Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers. I just wanted to say,, this company has gone above and beyond for not only their employees, but they make the consumers number one. I've never seen another agency do so Much. There are so many people that would not see any thing other than the inside of their homes. I have witnessed the things AUCP has done to help people live life to the fullest and seen the smiles they put on their faces. I've seen every single person, even the CEO take the time to make these consumers feel like they matter. Thank you AUCP not only for giving me the opportunity to be part of your family. But for everyone that you help live a life that alone they may not be able to.
AUCP has been serving my mother for several years. It is a well rounded company. They answer all of my questions. The aids are a huge part of our life now we wouldn't be able to do the things we do without there team of direct care workers and the staff. I am so thankful for this agency and everything they do for my mother.
I have been a client with this agency for many years. They always please me with the positive people that work the company. The care workers do everything plus some to meet my needs. I would highly recommend Alleghenies Unlimited Care Providers to anyone looking to receive care.
I first started with the agency in 1980 as a residential program worker. When the Homemaker Program was first introduced, I was the first test subject to go into the community to assist people with special needs in their own homes. I left the agency in 1988 due to starting a family. I went back to school and worked a few other jobs. Then after a divorce and my youngest was in school. I applied to UCP as a direct care worker. I now work in the office but I am able to appreciate what our Direct Care Workers mean to us and to the consumers that they help to be independent and have active roles in the community.
I was hired at AUCP in August 2016. My precious job had a history of an unhealthy work environment. Sometimes it was even frightening. AUCP made me feel so welcome and I think I can say I fit in well with the people I work with. Long story short, my father passed away suddenly and then my grandmother following my father. I was in a dark place and had to take work off for the funerals. I was still in my trial period. My supervisors were so helpful to make sure my family and I had what I needed. And my coworkers stepped up to help cover my shifts since I couldn't be there. AUCP has many people who genuinely care about each other. I definitely felt the love during my time of need.
I stayed casual at my previous job to make some extra cash. Well I was targeted there by a disgruntled coworker. I was put in a very unsafe situation. The team at AUCP made sure that I was never to be leaving at night by myself and to make sure that I was always safe.
I couldn't be more proud to work for such a great company. AUCP cares for their consumers and their employees.
I have been with AUCP now for over two years in the office, I may not have started out in the field as a Direct Care Worker but I have left the office to cover a shift for a consumer. We truly care about our consumers and we would not have it another way. I have learned so much from this company and how much we mean to the individuals that we help, they are always so thankful.
