Community Supported Living

ACHIEVA's residential program is now called "Community Supported Living".  We provide residential living options for adults with intellectual disabilities designed to provide safe, person-centered and inclusive community housing options.

Community Supported Living options include:

  • Community Living - ACHIEVA has nearly 50 licensed community homes throughout Allegheny County and 22 homes in Westmoreland County. These houses provide adults with disabilities the ability to live independently from their families in a comfortable home and community setting.

  • Supported Living - ACHIEVA provides supports to individuals with disabilities in their natural home and are designed to meet individual and family goals. Personal living, safety and socialization skills are developed with the goal of increased independence.

  • Lifesharing - ACHIEVA works with families who desire a family living arrangement for their loved ones with disabilities. If the individual chooses not to live with their natural family, ACHIEVA locates shared families. Prospective home providers are screened for program suitability.

  • Parenting Support - ACHIEVA offers a parenting education program for parents and caregivers who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Parents with disabilities may need support to learn parenting and other living skills necessary to care for their children. With guidance, 80 percent of the children in these families will maintain equal footing with their classmates.
