Beginning as a Direct Support Professional in residential services, Ruth Siegfried’s 40-year career has centered around community services for children and adults who experience challenges due to mental health issues, intellectual disability, traumatic brain injury, autism, and other disabilities. Ruth founded InVision Human Services in 1992 out of her home, specifically to provide services to those people with disabilities who are often left underserved by traditional programs, usually due to multiple challenges. Today, InVision supports more than 500 people throughout Pennsylvania. The company has experienced exponential growth, and strives to be seen as a 'provider of choice' in Pennsylvania, and now comprises a parent company and two subsidiaries – InVision Behavioral Health and the InVision Foundation. InVision also has a Global Partnerships program, where employees support several organizations in South Africa.
In addition to serving on the Pennsylvania Advocacy and Resources for Autism and Intellectual Disability (PAR) Board of Directors, Executive Committee, and participating on and leading PAR committees, Ruth’s professional affiliations include; Board of Directors Secretary for William Penn Human Services; Advisory Board Member for FICE-USA; Board of Directors President for The Provider Alliance.
