Who We Are
We are a non-profit family of person-centered, community homes and services supporting 230 individuals with intellectual disabilities, many of whom have multiple physical challenges. Verland's main campus has ten larger, family-centered homes, which complement community placement with a complete continuum of options for those needing more support, and includes cutting-edge facilities that provide medical, dental, educational, recreational and therapeutic services. Our professionally trained staff are dedicated to the complex needs of our individuals, and provide a full continuum of treatment and services for a lifetime where the individuals are primary in an elegant, dignified, state-of-the-heart lifestyle.
Establish, support, operate and sustain the best possible programs for the holistic well-being of the individuals whom we serve, without prejudice.
Together We Are Stronger
Direct Support Professionals are the unsung heroes of what we do at Verland and many other organizations across the state. They give of themselves. Their work and loyalty contributes to our success. Government funding for these services has flat lined in recent years and many of our dedicated and caring staff are leaving the jobs they love to find others to help make ends meet. They need to receive a living wage.
We need the State leaders and legislators to step in and help fix this problem. Watch this short video and then please let your voice be heard. #FixTheDSPCrisis
Together we are stronger.
Verland would like to offer their sincere thanks to all organizations that generously contributed to Verland during the 2017 Pittsburgh Gives campaign. Click here to view those organizations that generously gave to support Verland's mission.
