I am part of the Mature Workers Program sponsored by the Urban league, presently working for the Human Service Center Corporation of Turtle Creek, Pa. I have been here 18 months. The compassion, empathy and commitment shown by the entire staff of HSCC towards their clients and potential clients is primary in their lives. They put in long hours. They listen to the clients concerns, needs, and everyday life problems. They explore every possibility to help clients. The programs and events they sponsor cover families and people from infancy through senior citizens. No one is left out. I feel honored to be able to work for HSCC and be a part of their mission. It is enriching my life and hopefully making me a better person.
I was very pleasantly surprised to see how many different services are available at the Human Services Center. From after school care to senior programs, the Human Services Center offers a wealth of resources and all with a smiling face!
The Human Services Center Corporation (HSCC) provides life changing programs and services to individuals of all ages and backgrounds in the Mon Valley region, located just miles outside of the City of Pittsburgh. This area has been extremely hard hit since the collapse of the steel industry in Pittsburgh (i.e. the early '80s). The Human Services Center Corporation admirably advocates on behalf of these individuals and families to receive more resources, as well as administers programs and services to those who need it the most. As if that were not enough, what also separates this nonprofit from so many others is the high caliber of its employees, its leadership and board of directors. If you are looking for a case study on what a great nonprofit looks like take a trip to the Turtle Creek area just outside of Pittsburgh, and ask to speak with the organization's Executive Director, Dave Coplan. You will leave amazed at the results this nonprofit has achieved.
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.
I have been in the Emerging Leaders Program for around 2 years. It is a very helpful program that I enjoy coming to. The Emerging Leaders Program gave me enough knowledge and help to optain my first job. The staff of the emerging leaders program are extremely kind, helpful, and thoughtful. Throughout the year w
I recently just joined the Emerging Leaders Program here at the Human Service Center Corporation. I am looking forward to being a part of this program so that I can better prepare myself for when I get out of high school. I am really looking forward to learning how to prepare for my future and any future jobs that I might get. My brother has been in the program for several years now and really likes it. It was because of him that I had decided to join. Everyone that I have met here has been really great to me and helpful. I am looking forward to being a part of the Emerging Leaders.
I am currently a member of the emerging learders program (ELP), which is a great oppurtunity for me to find help with job experience and getting ready for my career outside of high school. I believe that the human services center has a positive effect on our community because they really care about all the people that they service. The Emerging Leaders Program has provided many opportunities for me to job shadow, go on different field trips to area colleges, and to listen to guest speakers from other organizations in the community.
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.
I joined the Emerging Leaders Program when I was in the ninth grade. It was everything that I had expected and then some. We have gone on a lot of field trips to different colleges and trade schools that were very informative and helpful. Also we have had alot of guest speakers from all over the community that have been very interesting. I have learned a ton of different things like how to write a resume, interviewing techniques and even ideas on how to run your own business. I wish I could have joined earlier. This experience with Emerging Leaders Program has really made me a better individual and student.
