Welcome to the Emmaus Community of Pittsburgh! For more than 20 years, Emmaus has been providing permanent homes, respite care, and advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities and autism. We are an ecumenical, non-profit organization built upon a vision of people with and without disabilities sharing their lives. In living, working, and breaking bread together, people enjoy fellowship by sharing who they are and what they have with one another.
There are many ways to join Emmaus in our mission. Our website provides you with information about our programs, our staff and board members, employment and volunteer opportunities, making a gift, special events, and Emmaus Community news. Thank you for taking the time to visit!
We invite you to come take a tour and learn more about our Community in person at any time. Please use our online contact form to request additional information!
Emmaus currently operates five permanent homes in neighborhoods throughout the Greater Pittsburgh area. In these homes, individuals with intellectual disabilities receive 24-hour support and supervision.
Respite is an opportunity for individuals to experience greater independence and build new friendships, while caregivers have the comfort of knowing their loved one is receiving the highest quality of care.
Emmaus operates supervised apartments for individuals with intellectual disabilities who are able to live independently but still need up to thirty hours of supervision per week.
