HEARTH’s Happenings

Thank you to all of the Art of Wine and Food attendees, sponsors, and volunteers! Together, we raised over $95,000 for HEARTH’s program and suite of supportive services.

If you attended in person, please complete our feedback form to help us improve the experience in 2022. Weren’t able to attend? Check out photos from the event here.

Save the date for Purses With A Purpose, our annual silent auction and brunch event held at the beautiful LeMont Restaurant, on Sunday, December 5 at 11:00 a.m. Table sales will be available soon.

Thanks to the generous support from the Dunlap Family, attendees can enjoy one of our most popular events while overlooking the city of Pittsburgh. All proceeds benefit HEARTH families and programs.

Volunteer At HEARTH With Us This Weekend

We’re getting a fresh coat of paint thanks to PPG Colorful Communities, and we need volunteers to get the job done!

Join us this Saturday, October 16, from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. to paint all the trim of our communal spaces and help revitalize our facilities. Refreshments will be provided.

RSVP to Harriet Riley at  or 412-366-9801 ext. 3911.


We are honored and excited to announce that we have been chosen to participate in a special charitable giving campaign, sponsored and funded by Target. And you have the chance to help direct a portion of Target’s donation to us! 

Now through December 31, vote for us through the Target Circle program to help determine how Target’s donation will be divvied up.

We’re asking our supporters to help us make the most of this incredible opportunity. Every vote counts to help us receive a portion of the available Target funds as we continue our mission to eradicate homelessness. 

Don’t forget, as you earn more votes, you can keep voting multiple times during the campaign! Thank you for your support, and we encourage you to share your support for us (and your thanks to Target) on social media throughout the duration of the voting!

In Recognition Of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Every October, advocates from across the nation unite in their fight to end domestic violence.

Domestic violence is prevalent in every community and affects everyone regardless of age, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality.

As an organization committed to empowering homeless families who are victims of domestic violence or other trauma, we stand in solidarity with those who understand that having access to a safe place matters. 

We’ve all felt the effects of being home 24/7 during the pandemic. Now imagine being confined at home with your abuser. The pandemic has had an irreversible impact on victims of domestic violence, and it will take all of us to address the consequences.

We encourage you all to help raise awareness of this issue. Yes, it’s a challenging conversation, but it will continue to claim our future generations if we do not face it head-on. No act is too small.

Just ask HEARTH program participant Lila, who found her way to us after fleeing an abusive relationship. 

“HEARTH has helped me find my self-worth again. I was broken when I came into the program, and I left with a more positive outlook on life. While living at HEARTH, the skills I learned, like budgeting and becoming self-reliant, have stayed with me. I now use them to maintain our new home. The greatest gift is that my child saw that their mother could make it through anything. They now have confidence and can rely on me to protect them.”
