Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To allow any individual with a physical disability to live in the community with the support that they need in order to be an active member in their communities.

Provide individual assessments to determine services needed on a personal level.
Provide access to community resources as needed.
Meet or speak with these individuals monthly or as needed to stay on top of changes or needs.
Work as part of an interdisciplinary team to ensure a holistic approach to needs.
Ongoing monitoring of needs and changes.

Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy has a staff of over 50 Supports Coordinators in all areas of Pennsylvania to meet the individuals in their homes. Has contracts with the MCO's who manage the Community Health Choices waiver programs, which allows our Supports Coordinators to see and support the participants. Having staff all over the state not only gives the agency the capacity to make in-person visits but also gives the agency knowledge of supportive community resources unique to each area. Additionally, AUCP holds a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) accreditation.

Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy has secured contracts with the MCO's to act as external partners. In 2021, we acquired our National Committee for Quality Assurance at the highest level of three years for the second time. We have grown from 18 Supports Coordinators to over 50 Supports Coordinators as well as expanding to cover over 57 counties throughout PA.
