Why We Work Here
In the first few days of employment at Allegheny Children’s Initiative, I felt immediately supported by leadership, and my coworkers were welcoming and willing to help. I was comfortable asking questions, and I knew I’d be connected with the best answers. I never doubt that I will be heard because the agency fosters a culture of consistent support that builds a foundation for everyone based in trust and empathy.

As a direct support professional, I have a chance to make a difference in the lives of people every day!! Teaching skills like tying shoes, cooking, or how to make crafts is so rewarding. Teaching them to be proud of every accomplishment and seeing them smile, makes my job the best job ever.
