About Us

Leading with Optimism

People are capable of incredible things. 

The obstacles we face can be intimidating – but with a little help, nothing is too challenging.

In 2017, ACCS was established with the foundation that every person is unique and has purpose. Today, ACCS continues with the vision of enriching lives by serving a variety of adults across 28 counties in Pennsylvania. Life does not stop after high school – services should not either. ACCS guides individuals through adulthood to achieve independence, community inclusion, and self-worth. ACCS strives to be an open-minded and empowering company serving as mentors, role models, and advocates for individuals.

What our individuals and families are saying:

  • “Staff is very helpful and caring.”
  • “[staff] has been a God sent to our family. We struggled to find a care provider that was reliable and cared as much as ACCS does”
  • “Services have been exceptionally professional, positive and incredibly helpful to support our son as he navigated life.”

 

What staff are saying:

  • “The team at ACCS is committed to creating lasting and meaningful change for the adults in our treatment. Through using interventions rooted in science, the team shares their passion and desire to develop relationships to impact the lives of others. Teamwork and self-improvement is the goal we strive for in our individuals as well as ourselves.”

ACCS is committed to using behavioral sciences to improve data-driven practices. Areas of clinical specialization include but are not limited to: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Verbal Behavior (VB), and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).
