Emmaus Communities

Mission Statement:

The Emmaus Community of Pittsburgh is dedicated to providing residential homes for persons with 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.
