About Emmaus

The Emmaus Community of Pittsburgh is an ecumenical, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing permanent homes, respite care, in-home services, and advocacy to people with intellectual disabilities in the Pittsburgh region.

Since 1990, Emmaus has grown from a small, grassroots organization to a well-respected provider of disability services in the Pittsburgh region.

We have expanded our services to welcome more individuals from the waiting list, while maintaining the highest quality of care for the individuals we serve.

At Emmaus, we recognize the unique gifts of every individual. We strive to provide not only a place for our residents to live, but true Homes, where everyone has the opportunity to live whole and meaningful lives in the community.

By sharing their lives with one another, our residents and staff develop strong , caring relationships, which foster mutual growth and empower Community members to live up to their greatest potentials.
