The management team at the Ambridge Regional Center (ARC) went out of their way in our time of need to not only customize a space for us but to make us feel at home.  I expected the relocation from Central Ohio to Pittsburgh to be difficult, but thanks in large part to the management team here at the ARC the transition was seamless.  Whether it is helping us navigate around Western, PA or by providing us with key contacts in the community to help us get our business off the ground, they are here when we need them.  They have a unique way of removing the landlord/tenant feel and incorporating the family/team feel.
