Beth Latuch

Unit Director
My favorite time of year and my favorite memories come from the "Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays that have been celebrated over my years as a Unit Director with my staff and our youth. Each year we get the opportunity to make a large home-cooked meal to serve to and enjoy with our youth; sharing gifts, things we are thankful for, successes throughout the year, and hopes for the new year. Being able to have a cheerful group celebration brings a light out in each of our boys that is wonderful to see. Our staff come together to spend these moments together that I am sure we will all carry with us!"

Kerry Ozmelek

Career Readiness Supervisor
"I began teaching at the Partial Hospitalization Progam, after changing careers. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff and fellow teachers who helped me on my new journey as a teacher. The students were also amazing! Each with such a different story to tell and needs to be met. The kids truly just need some guidance, caring, and respect to succeed. Showing them that an adult really cares about them and their future might be all they need.  Some of our students have not been given much, if any guidance and they crave that! I hope we are all making a difference in their lives every single day!"

Chris Moyer

Adopion Caseworker
"I never truly appreciated how important family was until I started working at Adelphoi. The phone did not ring very often at Greystone. When it did ring, it was often a wrong number or a telemarketer; very seldom did any parents call. When I worked one Easter and none of the youth received family visits, calls, or letters, I was truly struck with how blessed I was to have family who loved and accepted me for all my foibles.  When I had the chance to become an Adoption Caseworker, this notion of the importance of family became significant as I was now advocating for kids who had no one. Adelphoi helped me find a newfound love and respect for my family and reaffirmed their importance to me."

William Semo

Residential Youth Worker
"In the two decades that I've worked for Adelphoi, I've had the privilege of being a mentor among others helping youth to have the opportunity in their lives to better themselves. Being part of a team has built friendships that are lifelong, and given a sense of rewarding meaning to my life. My greatest memory is seeing the look of self-confidence when a client graduates high school, college, or works a job in which the advice I've given them comes to fruition in their lives. This is an amazing company to be a part of."

William Emerick

Education Supervisor
"Working at Adelphoi has helped develop the skills I have needed to be successful within my field. Adelphoi has improved my drive for success and has helped me grow as an educator and advance in my career. Working here gives the chance to change the life of students and families for the better and help them succeed in their future and that leaves an impactful meaning on the world around us. I am proud to be a part of Adelphoi and I am proud of the students that come in every day and work hard to succeed."

Brandi Brukner

PTSD Therapist
"I recently received a call from a previous client. When she was with Adelphoi, she was constantly fighting, wanted to quit school, and had little motivation. Several months after working together, she expressed interest in joining the military. She recently graduated from basic training and is working on helicopters. She expressed feeling so empowered by our time together. I am so unbelievably proud of her! Although it may not always seem like it at the time, we do make a difference!"

Billie Jean Miller

MST Supervisor
"Hands down, Adelphoi is the best company I have worked for in regards to supporting its employees.  The MST Team has been endlessly supportive of my life events, including a car accident and the birth of my son.  Since joining the team at Adelphoi, I have felt as though they put the person first.  It is clear that leadership wants Adelphoi to set the bar in all aspects of the community, education, and mental health, and they encourage the employees to excel individually in order to make that happen."

Stephen Thompkins

Education Aide
"A memorable moment at Adelphoi is seeing several of my former students in the public setting and seeing them being positive role models in society."

Tony Diorio

Assistant Director of Facility Operations
"I can remember as a kid going to Saint Vincent College to watch Adelphoi staff play basketball against the Steelers. It would be a huge week for us at Saint Vincent Grade School with poster contests and the Steelers would visit. The whole process was centered around what Adelphoi does for kids and everyone got on board to help."

Dan Anderson

Facilities Technician
"My most memorable moment was the day I got hired 8+ years ago. I met some of the most caring and wonderful staff and some of the most amazing residents here that you could not find anywhere else.
Working in Facilities Operation I learned so much that I couldn’t even explain. Working alongside staff has been totally incredible. For me to pick one memorable moment would be impossible."
