Our Work

With the support of individuals and corporate sponsors we have successfully completed projects and created plans for the future that will allow us to help communities in need and improve their quality of life. Our current projects include:

Adaptive Sports, Inc (ASI)

Audia Caring Heritage was approached by Adaptive Sports, Inc. (ASI) to supply a storage building for their sporting equipment. ASI, formed in 2002 offers a variety of sports & activities which are adapted specifically for children and young adults with special needs. The goal of ASI is to encourage active lifestyles and social interactions for all of their athletes, no matter the physical, mental or emotional challenges. The 8’x 8’ storage building was purchased and delivered to a convenient site for access to the organization’s leadership.

Washington Hospital Children's Therapy Center and Teen Outreach

The 2016 Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre Fundraiser met the goal to raise enough money to purchase 30 iPads for the Center. ACHA Board Members delivered the new iPads on October 28, 2016. Pictured blelow from left to right are Board Secretary, Gordon Gore, Assistant Director of the Children's Therapy Center, Maureen Poulliott with Center youth Gavin, and Board Member, Terri Andy and Board Treasurer, Becky Ramsey. As you can tell from Gavin's reaction in next photo with Poulliout and Center Staff, the iPads will certainly be treasured!

Holiday Angels

Annually ACHA provides warm clothing, pajamas and toiletries to the homeless and needy families served by the Washington City Mission Avis Arbor Women and Children’s Shelter.  Over the years, we have provided household items, food and holiday gifts for the women and children, in an attempt to provide a renewed sense of family. Through the generosity of our supporters, we have also been able to provide Christmas gifts to the Children served by the Washington Chapter of CASA for Kids, Inc.

Washington Christian Outreach

In 2015 ACHA helped the Washington Christian Outreach in building a security fence.

ACHA has donated A GE Hi-Speed Scanner (CAT Scan),Video Laparoscope,Retinal Laser Ultrasound Imaging Equipment, Equipment cart for dialysis center OEC 9600 Vascular Mobile C-Arm, Image Intensifier with expanded surgical package and vascular road mapping capability.

Medical Educational Exchange

The Pennsylvania and West Virginia chapters of ACHA have joined forces to sponsor a Medical Educational Exchange between the hospital in San Giovanni in Fiore and several hospitals in Southwestern Pennsylvania and West Virginia. This annual exchange provides an opportunity for Students and WVU School Medicine Faculty travel to San Giovanni in the spring; and members of the City Hospital in San Giovanni in Fiore, Calabria, Italy travel for a two week period to observe medicine in the US in the fall.

Washington City Mission

The renovation project of the Washington City Mission’s Men’s Rehabilitation Center and the Avis Arbor Women and Children’s Shelter Arbuckle Medical Center, Washington PA, more than doubled the size of the facility and provided two private examination rooms, office space and much needed lockable and climate controlled storage for medical supplies.

Vintage House Library

ACHA Pennsylvania chapter donated $5,000 to the residents of the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh by establishing a Multi-media Health and Wellness Library for senior citizens at the Vintage House. Dr. Michael Bonidie of Mt. Lebanon thanked the ACHA Trustees at a ribbon cutting ceremony and said, "Many of the elderly who are served by Vintage House have limited reading skills and find medical terminology difficult to understand. Offering videos will allow patients to view the information about how to care for their medical needs after the doctor's visit is over. Instead of a diabetic patient having to read the information telling how to test their blood sugar levels how to care for wounds they can see and hear the person on the video explain it to them."
