What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Glade Run works with individuals who have been diagnosed with mental health conditions and/or autism. The prevalence of autism continues to skyrocket, and today one in every 5 individuals has a diagnosed mental health issue. Glade Run's continuum of services provides support for all in home, community, and school settings. The agency continues to evolve to meet the changing and ever more challenging needs of children, teens, adults and families in our communities throughout Western Pennsylvania and beyond.

Goals & Strategy

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

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

Glade Run's goals include recognition as Pennsylvania's premier autism, education and mental health agency .
Glade Run plans to meet our mission and expand service delivery by creating a unique sensory park and playground for children with autism as well as a one-of-a-kind inclusive housing community (Jeremiah Village) appropriate for - but not limited to- individuals with autism.

Glade Run involves staff from across the agency with the development of an annual strategic plan. This plan includes detailed goals, action steps and champions dedicated to the accomplishment of those goals. Glade Run employs a vice president of program excellence to ensure that program offerings are of exceptional quality and that they are highly individualized to meet the needs of our diverse clients. Glade Run also employs a family partnership department dedicated to create bridges between families and clients and to ensure that skills gained by clients can be generalized back into the home and community.

Glade Run makes extensive investments in staff training and development.
Glade Run is recognized as a regional leader in autism services, and has been providing residential programming to youth since 1854.

Our strategic plan highlights some autism expansion in the form of additional off campus school sites and other offerings, including an autism preschool program. Though this continues to be a goal, currently our autism expansion has taken place on our main site.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
