Charting impact

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

ACHIEVA aims to continue to be the leading provider of lifetime supports for people with disabilities and their families in Western Pennsylvania so that people with disabilities may participate to the fullest extent possible in the community.

Following our strategic plan, ACHIEVA will expand the number of people served, build awareness, increase new and innovative supports, and much more through continued advocacy, programming, outreach, partnerships, and fundraising.

ACHIEVA's staff are national leaders in the disabilities field. Our dedicated staff, many of whom have worked at ACHIEVA or in the disabilities field for decades, and active trustees work to ensure ACHIEVA is fulfilling its mission of excellence in lifelong supports for people with disabilities.

ACHIEVA envisions the day when people with disabilities fully participate in the community. In the organization's more than 65 year history that has been a key goal. ACHIEVA will strive to reach that vision through our work until that day happens.
