Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, raising a family as a single parent today requires more time, energy & resources than ever before. Your donation made through the Pittsburgh Foundation will be matched up to $1000 from a pro-rated pool & help cover the cost of basic needs for HEARTH families.

Purses with a Purpose has been Postponed to a later date.

Purses with a Purpose takes place each December. Started in 2009 it has easily grown into one of our most popular events.
Thanks to the generous support from the Dunlap Family, our silent auction and brunch is held at the beautiful LeMont Restaurant overlooking the city of Pittsburgh.
The auction is one of a kind and hosts a variety of fun purse themed items as well as program that elevates the women living at HEARTH.
