Chief Executive Officer / Founder, Jennifer Romoff’s passion has always been to ensure that those with intellectual disability disorders (IDD) have the support and access to resources needed to live as independently as possible. As the mother of two disabled children, Jennifer knows first-hand the challenges young adults experience in an ever-changing society. This desire led her to a career move in 2016 from health care administration to working as a Habitation Specialist for a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit assisting individuals with a variety of IDD diagnoses with daily living skills and social outings to enrich their quality of life. From there, Jennifer spent the next three years providing direct care assistance to individuals with IDD as a Community Support Specialist. Through Jennifer’s direct care experiences, she became aware of the incredibly positive impact of interacting with individuals with IDD on an individualized basis and that this one-on-one, personal interaction and support resulted in improved independent living and social skills among those with IDD. This passion led Jennifer to establish Allegiant Human Services in 2019 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to the individualized, personal care and support of individuals with IDD. Jennifer serves as the Chief Executive Officer responsible for overall organizational direction and accreditation, oversight of program operations, and staff supervision, but she’s also out there in the field every day working alongside AHS clients providing direct care support and modeling for staff a commitment to the effective delivery of services.
Jennifer is Association of Community Rehabilitation Educators (ACRE) Employment Services Certified and was a 2018 Dr. Carolyn Hoffman Leadership Nominee.
