Emmaus Community of Pittsburgh 2018 Annual Report

Letter from the Executive Director:

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

My Dear Friends:

Emmaus Community is about people with and without disabilities celebrating the seasons, navigating our way through each day and each year. We walk the road of life together, breaking bread at meal time, but more importantly in sharing our lives as brothers and sisters on life’s journey.

Last year Emmaus welcomed new individuals, new staff, new donors, new board members, new young professionals, and new volunteers. We also said our final “goodbyes” to many friends who were integral members of our Community, and yet we still carry them in our hearts.

At Emmaus, we celebrate big milestones like opening a new home, or completing a Capital Campaign. But we also celebrate someone learning a new skill, or getting a new job. We laugh together. We sometimes cry together. We always work together to help make the world a more peaceful place where every human being is valued. “There is a time to every purpose!”

At Emmaus Community of Pittsburgh, we support the values put forth in the Office of Developmental Program’s “Everyday Lives” document: freedom, stability, quality, relationships, advocacy, choice, individuality, health and safety, meaningful employment, communication, control, connectedness, success, responsibility, and partnerships.

The success of our mission depends on all of us, each and every Emmaus Community member regardless of our role, understanding our value and our importance. Thank you for everything you do to help Emmaus live out our mission and values.

Residential Program

Emmaus currently operates ten permanent homes, providing opportunities for 23 individuals with intellectual disabilities to receive the supports they need in an inclusive, welcoming home environment. Emmaus welcomed its newest resident in August of 2018. Emmaus residents participate as active members of their communities and are supported by a caring, qualified team of Direct Support Professionals. The Emmaus Residential Program supports individuals from they day they become part of Emmaus until the end of life.

In-Home Services

The Emmaus In-Home Services Program provides opportunities for individuals living independently or with family to receive In-Home & Community Supports and Companion Services. These services allow individuals to pursue new skills and become more independent in their lives. In-Home Services participants have the opportunity to build relationships and participate in activities in their own communities. The Emmaus In-Home Services Program currently provides services to 14 unique individuals through this vital program!

The Emmaus Team

The Emmaus Community is rooted in a philosophy of people with and without disabilities sharing their lives. We believe that our Direct Support Professionals are critical to our mission, and we are always working to ensure that we recruit the most caring and qualified professionals to work with those we serve. Emmaus currently has 99 full- and part-time employees.

In 2018 Emmaus launched a DSP Recruitment Campaign, in order to share the rewards and impact of this work with the public.

2018 DSP Recruitment Campaign kicks off!

The Emmaus team also works to educate elected officials and advocate for the needs of people with intellectual disabilities and the DSP workforce shortage.

Emmaus staff visit the PA Capitol for a day of advocacy in April of 2018.

Education and Outreach Program

The Emmaus Education & Outreach Program works with volunteers, community partners, and the public to raise awareness and further the mission of Emmaus. In 2018, 441 Emmaus volunteers contributed 2,711 hours of service to Emmaus! These donated volunteer hours are valued at $66,934!

Emmaus volunteers did a world of good at Emmaus in 2018!

The Emmaus Young Professional Advisory Board is a group of young professionals between the ages of 22 and 40 who are dedicated to furthering the mission of Emmaus. Members develop relationships with the Emmaus residents and each other, serve on event planning committees, engage in volunteer projects, and work to spread the word about our organization and mission.

The Emmaus Young Professional Advisory Board kicked off its new program year in September of 2018 with a gathering at Top Golf, where members had an opportunity to socialize and get to know Emmaus and each other better. In November, the members joined with the Emmaus residents for a bowling and dinner party. Everyone enjoyed knocking pins and spending some time together! The board has a lot more in store for the New Year, including planning the upcoming Emmaus Purse Bash!

The Emmaus Community of Pittsburgh is dedicated to providing residential homes for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities and promoting public awareness of their needs.

The Community, inspired by Faith and a desire to help others, seeks to improve the quality of life for persons with developmental disabilities. In living, working, and breaking bread together, people with and without disabilities enjoy fellowship by sharing who they are and what they have with one another. Strengthened by its spirituality and prayerful direction, the Community helps all members grow and become whole.
