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.

I started working for AUCP back in December 2014 as a Direct Care Worker. It was wonderful getting to meet and care for many different individuals. Being a DCW allowed me to not only enjoy what I did; but gave me a sense of purpose. I am now currently a member of the Recruitment team here at AUCP. Its wonderful working for a company that allows for growth and advancement.
