Formerly known as The Arc of Allegheny County, Achieva was started in 1951 by parents who wanted more for their children with a disability than placement in a state institution. For seven decades, Achieva has become a well-known leader in innovation, advocacy, and high-quality inclusive supports for people with disabilities and their families.
Achieva is pleased to announce the expansion of services to Beaver County. In addition to continuing provision of advocacy and family supports, special needs trusts, and recreational, day and overnight activities for people with disabilities in Beaver County, the following services will be offered effective July 1, 2019:
Focusing on competitive and small group employment, Employment Supports provides employment training and opportunities for people with disabilities while matching skills and interests to community partners.
Achieva's Community Participation service is designed to integrate people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) into the greater community along with persons without disabilities. Through relationships with local organizations, we provide volunteer experiences, community engagement and informal educational opportunities.
Achieva Home Care provides in-home and community support for people of any age with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Our goals and supports are designed to build independence and ensure health and safety. Caregiver supports can be provided for a few hours daily, weekly, monthly or on a 24 hour basis that is dependent on an individual's needs.
Achieve the dream of living independently in the community. Achieva’s A Home of My Own provides supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live safely in a home they choose.
