Devereux PLEA Executive Director Gretchen Kelly was elected president of the Conference of Allegheny Providers Executive Committee.

Congratulations to Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health PLEA Executive Director Gretchen Kelly, who was recently elected president of the Conference of Allegheny Providers (CAP) Executive Committee.

CAP, an affiliate member of the Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association, is an association of nonprofit human service organizations in Allegheny County whose membership consists of behavioral health, intellectual and developmental disability, and advocacy providers.

“I am excited and honored to serve as president of CAP’s Executive Committee,” said Kelly. “I have been a member of CAP for more than a decade and have served as a member-at-large on the Executive Committee for the past two years. I am proud of the amazing work of our partner organizations in supporting some of the most vulnerable members of our community, and representing this group will be incredibly rewarding as we work to strengthen human services in the state.”

Transforming lives

In her role as president of CAP’s Executive Committee, Kelly will advocate for the needs of the individuals and families served by Devereux PLEA and all of CAP’s member organizations, ensuring they have access to the high-quality compassionate care they deserve.

She noted, “I look forward to leading the committee as we work to advance the important mission of CAP and further amplify the collective voice of our members, ensuring we have a strong, unified platform to collaborate, share best practices and address the complex challenges facing the human services industry. Together, will we transform lives across Allegheny County.”
