Resolving Conflict & Improving Lives, Since 1996


We have partnered with organizations for 24 years to strengthen the limited-income community by providing utility assistance and other services that lead to self-sufficiency for more than 10,000 head of household moms. Funding for this program was provided in part by a grant from the POISE Foundation.

We care about you and are working diligently with our partners to try our best to accommodate you during this unfortunate pandemic. Most of our programs have continued to online applications and classes due to COVID-19. Counseling is available via phone only. Food Share and basic need distributions are limited and based on availability. Please leave a detailed message at 412-661-1919 for additional assistance.

Studies have shown that financial hardship directly affects academic achievement.
