About ESCA

Since 1988, East Suburban Citizen Advocacy (ESCA) has been dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with developmental disabilities. ESCA networks to identify and support advocates who give a voice to the most vulnerable people with disabilities.

We focus on serving the unique needs of each individual. After spending time with a person and getting to know his or her needs, we look for individuals or groups in the community with the appropriate skills, interests, and qualities to be advocates. We introduce people to each other and provide ongoing support to the relationships. Our advocates represent the best interests of the person with the disability with as much vigor and concern as he or she would act on their own behalf.

Who we serve:

East Suburban Citizen Advocacy grew out of the cares and concerns of parents who have children with developmental disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, autism, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, or other challenges that have been present since birth or childhood. Our advocates serve people in every age group. They have needs that are as diverse as the individuals. Our focus area encompasses eastern Allegheny County and all of Westmoreland County.
