Allegheny Children’s Initiative was established in 1993 by the Allegheny County Children, Youth & Families and Behavioral Health/Office of Intellectual Disabilities Departments, to provide case management services for children and adolescents who needed assistance beyond the traditional array of services.
Allegheny Children’s Initiative teamed up with Citizen Care in March 2000 and expanded its continuum of services and supports to provide interventions to children and families in the home, school, and community settings.
Today, Allegheny Children’s Initiative and Citizen Care are both members of the Partners For Quality family of nonprofit agencies.
Allegheny Children’s Initiative is a credentialed provider with Beacon Health Options and Community Care Behavioral Health Organization. In addition, Allegheny Children’s Initiative is nationally accredited by The Council on Accreditation.
