this place sucks on new Hampshire drive lower burrell. Workers are ruid and don't care that they block my driveway. Going to the state. This state home should be in a State HOME

I was able to speak with multiple staff members of FSWP, and I was greatly impressed with the pride they took in their organization and how readily they pointed to the individuals they served as markers for success. FSWP is a well funded, diversified organization, and I can only hope that more individuals will recognize the tangible impact they have upon the many communities of Southwestern PA.
