Community Habilitation (Adult Development Training): ACHIEVA's Customized Day Programs, located in the Strip District, West Mifflin and Greensburg, are designed to support a diverse group of individuals with disabilities. Within these three programs, a therapeutic approach is geared towards creating social, recreational and vocational opportunities. We strive to provide supports that are individualized, flexible and tailored to fit specific participant needs. All components of the program are geared towards assisting participants in attaining their personal outcomes.
Pre-Vocational Services (Facility-Based Employment): ACHIEVA's facility-based programs are available at our Strip District, Wilkinsburg, West Mifflin, Bridgeville and Greensburg locations. Participants focus on developing vocational skills in a habilitative environment. Supports include personal and work adjustment training designed to develop appropriate worker traits and teach an understanding of the work environment, work sampling, paid contract work and support groups that promote peer interaction and social development.
Transitional Work Services (Mobile Work Crew): Cleaning and janitorial crews are dispatched from our Strip District location led by a crew manager. Workers perform various tasks including: general office cleaning, building maintenance, carpet care and hard floor care. Most individuals receiving Transitional Work Services are supported in a 1:4 - 1:8 staffing ratio depending on the work being performed. Shifts are Monday through Friday afternoons, but some morning and weekend hours are available.
