East Suburban Citizen Advocacy (ESCA) has been a small Non-Profit Organization since 1988 and has been dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with developmental disabilities.
We focus on serving the unique needs of each individual. After spending time with a person and getting to know his or her needs, we look for individuals or groups in the community with the appropriate skills, interests, and qualities to be advocates. Some examples of advocacy situations we have experience in is the Individual Education Plan (IEP) process, IDD/Autism Waiver system process, Early Intervention, Abusive situations, Legal Guardian, Rep-payees, and Transitional age resources. Our advocacy efforts remain FREE to those who need them.
East Suburban Citizen Advocacy grew out of the cares and concerns of parents who have children with developmental disabilities, such as intellectual disabilities, autism, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, or other challenges that have been present since birth or childhood. Our advocates serve people in every age group in Westmoreland County and Eastern Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
