HEARTH’s Monthly Gratitude
Architect Steve Cupcheck is not a man to make waves, but for many years he has been a calm and constant force that has had great impacts on the HEARTH community.
During his tenure on the board of directors, he was instrumental remodeling the in Benedictine Academy Building and Benet Woods into transitional housing for families in need.
After close to two decades of service, Steve Cupcheck is stepping down from his role as board president of Benet Woods. We are grateful for Steve and his years of quiet, dedicated service.

Emergency Rental Assistance Program Set to Expire in Allegheny County in May
Written by Milena Nigam, Member, Board of Directors
The federally-funded Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP), enacted in December 2020 and expanded in March 2021 to assist families unable to pay rent and utilities during the COVID-19 crisis, is set to expire in Allegheny County at the end of May. Since March 2021, 14,000 local households have received $85 million from ERAP, and applications continue at a rate of 100 new requests every day.
The county anticipates running out of funds before summer and has notified recipients of the May 31 end date. At HEARTH, we will continue to advocate for affordable housing where families are safe and secure in their ability to pay rent and utilities and care for their dependents. Like so many things, housing security is a right due to all our neighbors.
