I am a direct care support person and I actually enjoy attending the Friendship group with my client each Wednesday.

Seraya S.

Over the years ESCA has provided a place for my people to go and socialize and to learn job skills. Everyone there is accepting, kind, and amazing. Words cannot express how important this organization is.


I recommend the friendship group because it helps make friends and helps socialization

I like that they help those with special needs. Everyone has different needs


ESCA provides consistency and compassion, they have been a tremendous help with advocating for consumers who feel they aren't being heard.

Love what you do, how you do it, and why you do it!!!

Educational advocacy is hard to find in western PA. ESCA gives families peace of mind.


I believe the Advocates have changed the lives of those they serve in profound life empowering and possibly lifesaving ways!

Angel S.

Knowing that my clients have a voice in matters that are life changing puts me at ease, as their supports coordinator. Keep up the great work, ESCA!

Between advocating , supporting our community and the with no judgement offered from ESCA problems have been resolved in many matters.
